Mid-Atlantic digs out of snow; government

Natural Disasters Posted on

The federal government is shuttered today as the Mid-Atlantic region digs out from as much as 3 feet of snow.

The storm has left tens of thousands without power and blocked trains, planes and cars as another storm looms.

Federal agencies that employ 230,000 in Washington are closed, as are many local governments, businesses and school districts across the region. Around 200,000 students in Philadelphia's public and Roman Catholic schools are getting a snow day.

More snow is expected tomorrow. And stranded travelers and those struggling with no electricity when they will escape the icy, gray mess.

The National Weather Service called the storm "historic" and reported a foot of snow in parts of Ohio and 2 feet or more in Washington, Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Parts of Virginia, Maryland and West Virginia got closer to 3 feet.
