SEVERE STORM POUNDS NE-OC


THE MASSIVE WINTER STORM --

IS SLAMMING THE NORTHEAST RIGHT NOW.

RIGHT NOW, PEOPLE THERE ARE ALL BRACING FOR AN INCOMING "BOMB CYCLONE."

YON POMRENZE EXPLAINS FROM BOSTON --

HOW WINTER STORM WARNINGS ARE IMPACTING THOSE FROM SOUTH CAROLINA TO MAINE. Return to index of stories...


SEVERE STORM POUNDS NE-PKG


FROM FLORIDA TO MAINE -- MORE THAN 60 MILLION AMERICANS ARE FACING THE THREAT OF SEVERE WEATHER.

MOS: It's amazing. I've never seen this much snow here.

TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, GOT IT'S FIRST MEASURABLE SNOWFALL SINCE 1989 -- NEARLY 30 YEARS AGO.

CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA GOT MORE THAN FIVE INCHES OF SNOW.

EVERY EAST COAST STATE FROM MAINE TO FLORIDA IS UNDER SOME TYPE OF WINTER STORM WATCH, OR WARNING, AND METEOROLOGISTS EXPECT IT TO STAY THAT WAY FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK. AUTHORITIES ARE URGING RESIDENTS TO STAY INSIDE.

Deputy Chief Russell Wells / Jasper Co. Emergency Services: "If you don't have a reason to be out, don't be out.

THE NORTHEAST MAY SEE SIX TO TWELVE INCHES OF SNOW, ALONG WITH HURRICANE FORCE WINDS TODAY, THANKS TO A "BOMBOGENESIS," OR AREA OF RAPIDLY DECLINING LOW AIR PRESSURE. IN FACT, SOME AREAS COULD SEE WIND SPEEDS HIGHER THAN HURRICANE SANDY.

MOS: You always worry when there's a lot of wind blowing that the trees are going to come down.

Kathryn Garcia / NYC Sanitation Commissioner: We're going to have exceptionally strong winds, so anything that is falling in these cold temperatures is likely to blow around and drift.

BY THE END OF THIS WEEK, PARTS OF THE NORTHEAST WILL BE COLDER THAN MARS.

Herman Schaffer / NYC Emergency Management Assistant Commissioner: It's going to be incredibly low temperatures, it is going to get lower after the storm, so this weekend is going to be incredibly cold.
