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.
