Winter storm moves north and causes more travel headaches

Travelers all over the southern area of the United States are already experiencing headaches. The Atlanta airport, the busiest in the world, had dozens and dozens of flights canceled as a rare winter snow storm crippled much of the southern United States. Currently, however, the National Weather Service is warning that the same storm is headed north and east.

The cities in the path of the storm, according to the Weather Service, include major travel hubs. Philadelphia, Boston and New York are all expected to take a hit. New York is expected to get between 8 to 14 inches starting Tuesday night and on in to Wednesday. Boston is predicted to get between 9 to 15 inches.

New York’s Governor Cuomo activated the state’s emergency plans on Tuesday. He did so in an effort to ensure that the streets will be cleared and that residents have access to the resources they need.

The National Weather Service has issued a “weather emergency” and is advising motorists and travelers to stay off the roads. Major cities have also initiated parking bans and are allowing snow taking away crews to tow and remove cars parked in snow zone.
