Snow Storm Blankets the City, Again
Friday, February 26, 2010
Hundreds of flights were canceled, the Port Authority remains open, but Greyhound, Megabus, Bolt Bus, and Peter Pan Lines buses have been canceled today and students were off from school -- only the ninth time since 1982, but the second time this year.
As of mid-day, the snow accumulation measures 20.8 inches in Central Park, according to the National Weather Service.
Many of the city's bus routes are experiencing delays, the Port Jervis line of Metro North is suspended West of Suffern, 16 NJ Transit bus lines are still suspended, and rail delays continue in New Jersey.
Upstate, utility officials report nearly 180,000 residents are without power and may not have their power restored until next week. National Grid predicts it will restore power to 10,000 residents by late Friday.
The forecast shows more snow, and a winter weather alert remains in effect until 6:00 a.m. Saturday as we move into the weekend -- so bundle up, folks.
