On Tuesday, February 13, a rapid nor'easter hit New York and other major metropolitan areas in the Northeast. According to CNN, the hurricane cut off power to cities and disrupted the work of transport, organizations and schools.

At least 38 centimeters of snow fell in Connecticut, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and a total of 8 cm fell in New York's Central Park. This day was the snowiest since January 29, 2022. The snowfall began early in the morning of February 13th.

The storm has disrupted air travel in the northeast. According to FlightAware, more than 1100 flights were canceled at major airports in New York, Boston and New Jersey.

Power outages. According to the site PowerOutage.us, more than 130 customers in Pennsylvania and thousands more in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Maryland, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Virginia were without power. Dense, wet snow weighed down and broke tree branches across the region, and gusty winds made the situation worse.
