Between Friday January 22, and Sunday January 24, a winter storm dumped more than 2 feet (0.6 m) of snow on many states along the US East Coast. This massive snowfall approached all-time records in many places, such as New York’s Central Park, where the 26.6 inches (0.7 m) that fell on Saturday set a new record for the most snow in a single day. Glengary, West Virginia, received the most snow overall, with 42 inches (1.1 m). The storm affected approximately 85 million people and caused 11 states and Washington D.C. to declare emergencies. The snow buried cars and caused public transportation and plane flights to be delayed or cancelled. Parts of New Jersey and Delaware also experienced flooding. Although clean-up crews are hard at work, many cities will have transportation delays during this next week.
