US East Coast gearing up for massive blizzard over the weekend
Washington, Jan 23 (IBNS): A massive blizzard, expected to bring in more than 2-feet of snow and strong winds is travelling up the US East Coast, reports said.
Capital Washington is likely to receive a record 30-inches of snow by the time the storm passes.
Washington's transport system - the second busiest in the US - will remain closed over the weekend.
More than 50 million across a dozen states have been warned not to venture out and stay at home as the blizzard moves northwards.
Eight people have been killed, six states have declared states of emergency and more than six thousand flights have been cancelled.
Police in the New Jersey township of Barnegat used Facebook to issue an evacuation notice for residents near the Atlantic shore due to a forecast of coastal flooding as a result of the winter storm's strong winds, according to media report
