Thanksgiving storm hits east coast with snow, sleet and wind

Thanksgiving storm hits east coast with snow, sleet and wind”

"The trans-continental storm system that has hammered the western US andnorthern Plains with heavy snow and strong winds has now reached the GreatLakes region", the National Weather Service said in a bulletin on Sunday.

The same storm has pummeled the USA for days as it moved cross country, dumping heavy snow from California to the Midwest and inundating other areas with rain. Parts of New York, New Jersey and CT are under a winter storm watch starting Sunday morning.

As the storm shifts east, flight delays and cancellations are continuing to pile up - disrupting travelers heading home after Thanksgiving.

As of 12.30pm, more than 500 Sunday flights were cancelled in the United States, compared with about 400 last Saturday, according to flight tracking site FlightAware. But flights are also packed - AAA said about 4.5 million Americans were expected to fly during the Thanksgiving holiday this year.

In Denver, 100 flights were canceled Saturday because of high winds.

Hundreds of flights are being canceled because of a winter storm sweeping across the USA and heading right for the tri-state area and New England, leaving travelers scrambling to get home after Thanksgiving.

Only 3 inches of snow was expected in New York City.

Elsewhere in the country, the storm proved deadly.

The bodies of two children were found in central Arizona after the vehicle they were in was swept away while crossing a swollen creek. Rescuers are combing the area of Tonto Basin, about 80km north-east of Phoenix, with helicopters, drones, boats and dogs.

Thanksgiving travel was snarled in some places by two powerful storms.

In Missouri, officials say three people were killed Saturday when their vehicles were swept off flooded roads in Bollinger County. In a separate incident, a 48-year-old Louisiana man died.

Major highways have reopened in Wyoming and Colorado, a day after snow and high winds caused blizzard conditions and clogged roads with snow drifts.

Road crews were able to reopen all of Interstate 25 and most of I-80 in Wyoming early on Sunday after strong winds abated.

Severe storms are also possible in the lower Mississippi Valley on Saturday, and the East Coast faces a nor'easter Sunday night into Monday.

The big winter storm that roared into the Northeast on Sunday has already dropped more than 18 inches of snow in Upstate New York, with more on the way today. Periods of rain and heavy snow across the Sierra Nevada can be expected through the remainder of the weekend, adding to the heavy precipitation at the end of last week, the NWS said.
