Millions of people in the eastern United States dug out Sunday from a historic blizzard that brought New York and Washington to a standstill, but travel woes look set to persist into another week.

The storm — dubbed “Snowzilla” — killed at least 18 people after it walloped several states from Friday into early Sunday, affecting an estimated 85 million residents who were told to stay in doors and off the roads for their own safety. Forecasters said 26.8 inches (68 centimeters) of snow fell in New York’s Central Park, the second-highest accumulation in the city since records began in 1869, and more than 22 inches paralyzed the capital Washington.

Near-record-breaking snowfall was recorded in other cities up and down the East Coast, with Philadelphia and Baltimore also on the receiving end of some of the worst that Mother Nature could fling at them. (AP)

A powerful blizzard struck Boston and surrounding New England on Tuesday, bringing as much as three feet of snow and causing coastal flooding.

High tides breached a seawall in Marshfield, about 30 miles (50 km) south of Boston, damaging 11 homes.

Snow was forecast to keep falling into early Wednesday in eastern New England, possibly setting a record snowfall in Boston.

The heaviest snowfall was recorded outside Boston, with 36 inches (91.4 cm) in Lunenburg, Massachusetts, and 35 inches (88.9 cm) reported in Auburn, according to the National Weather Service.

A snowstorm pounded the East Coast early Tuesday, bringing high winds and heavy snow to coastal areas of New Jersey northward through Maine.

Some areas of Massachusetts received more than a foot of snow by early Tuesday, where Plymouth received almost 16 inches, Shrewsbury almost 15, and Sandwich had 13 inches of snow.

More than 7,700 flights in and out of the Northeast were canceled on Monday and Tuesday.

Big Freeze, Britain’s Coldest Winter For The Century

Thousands who are affected by the flood are still sweeping the water out of their homes in Britain.

But now, Britain is facing another disaster, great blizzards and super cold winter.

Forecasters warn temperatures are about to plunge to the lowest in 100 years, with snow storms or blizzards and ice expected to cause travel chaos and deadly road conditions when temperatures in some areas could fall to minus 6°c and as low as minus 20°c (4°f) through December and January due to clear sky and strong northerly winds.

Tonight’s cold snap is expected to last until the end of the week and temperatures could fall to as low as minus 3°c (27°f) in some places, with snow already falling in the Pennines.

In Saltburn, North Yorkshire, northerly winds have become so strong that they are pushing water back up a cliff.

Mirror News reported that Weather Channel meteorologist Leon Brown said bitter northerly winds would move south today leading to a widespread frost across much of the country.

He said that, “The east will be seeing some of the lowest temperatures of minus 4°c to minus 6°c. During Friday, showers over the north will move south across Scotland with sleet and snow. These showers will continue south on Friday evening giving a covering of snow to the Pennines and possibly the north Midlands and even East Anglia. It will be very icy by Saturday morning.”

MailOnline reported that the cold, drier spell that starts tonight could be only a brief respite from the rain and more heavy showers are expected to return early next week, causing more misery to those trying to combat flood damage.

Beautiful Snow Pictures

There was heavy snow in Mid-Atlantic,USA over the weekend.

Aunty Selina sent me these beautiful photos 🙂

They were taken around her house in Maryland.

Aunty Selina works at the World Bank in Washington DC.

Her office was closed (and it is still close) since Monday because of the heavy snow 😦

Maybe the offices and schools will only be open next week.

I read in CNN that there are blizzards in the east coast of USA.

Blizzard is snow storm.

I wish I can go there to play in the snow :mrgreen:

Anyway in Malaysia it is very, very hot 😳

The temperature is about 91°F.

I hope on 13 February 2010 it will be snowing in Malaysia 🙄

): Disasters :(

The disasters are :

UFO, Tornado,  AcidRain,  Space JunkFlood Landslide,  Fire,  Earthquake,  Whirlpool,  Locust,  War,  Drought, Blizzard , Tsunami,  Hurricane,  Sandstorm,  Monsoon Storm,  Avalanche, Mudslide, Volcano Eruption.

Some people are also like disasters because they disturb and hurt other people 😦

Flood
Flood in India. It is a disaster.

People get hurt and some people die when disaster happens.

My big sister Aeshah’s friend died when a landslide hit her house in Taman Harmonis, Gombak 4 years ago.

Disasters also destroy houses, cars, farms, roads, schools, shops, hospitals and others.

Cutting down trees, throwing rubbish everywhere, cutting down hills, pollution, playing with matches and fire crackers can cause disasters.

I think we should not play with fire crackers and do not throw rubbish all over the place.

We should plant lots of trees, recycle and do not cut down hills.

We should love and take care of our planet Earth.
