Here's what you need to know as you wake up Saturday morning and plan your day.

New York City saw between 4 and 10 inches of accumulation and New Jersey saw between 4 and 15 inches. Both ares largely avoided the worst of the storm. Areas to the north and east of the city were hit much harder. Many parts of Long Island saw more than 20 inches of snow, including St. James in Suffolk County, which reported 27.5 inches. 

Many lines on the Long Island Railroad are shut down, as is the Long Island Expressway and many roads in Suffolk County.

Connecticut was also hit hard. Hamden, near New Haven, reported an astounding 34 inches of accumulation.

Local and State governments and agencies (and WNYC) are reacting to the storm. Here's what they're saying:

I just heard sirens in my Brooklyn neighborhood that sounded a lot like my Missouri town's tornado sirens - but I wasn't aware that NYC had weather warning sirens? People on my twitter feed hear the same thing! WNYC, help us out!
