Northeast Digs Out After Historic 2016 Blizzard

Northeast Digs Out After Historic 2016 Blizzard

The Northeast is digging out from record snowfall this weekend that shut down cities, transportation systems and left cars buried under feet of snow.  It’s likely to cost businesses and residents who lost sales and wages a total of about $2.5-$3 billion according to early estimates. 

The blizzard of 2016 impacted cities in states from Tennessee to New York and even delayed the opening of the Washington Auto Show. It remained closed Monday in wake of the storm and will open to the public on Tuesday. Washington was hit with at least 22 inches of snow, according to the Weather Service.

Cars are still buried under mounds of snow that fell over the weekend. It was definitely a time to heed travel warnings and stay off the road. At one point, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was even out on the highway assisting crews help stranded motorists.
