Megastorm leaves New York without flights or schools

NEW YORK. – New York City woke up covered in snow yesterday for the first time in two years as a storm hit the northeastern United States, forcing the closure of schools, cancellations of 1,200 flights and disruptions to vehicle traffic.

The National Weather Service (NWS) warned of storms with strong winds and heavy snow that could damage trees and power lines and disrupt travel, as well as coastal flooding.

This warning endangers around 32 million people in the North American metropolis.

So much so that schools ordered students to hold classes remotely, according to local authorities.

In addition, the authorities also stopped their activities.

This is the first time in two years that snowfall has required the use of snowplows in the country’s most populous city of 8.5 million people.

Many rural areas in the northeast were completely isolated.

In contrast, Manhattan’s Central Park dawned under a thick layer of white, prompting many to go out to enjoy this phenomenon, which is becoming increasingly rare due to climate change.

The last snowfall in New York was recorded on January 16, after 700 days of absence.
