Snow smashes northeastern U.S. for second time in week

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 02/03/2015 - 07:36
By Ellen Wulfhorst and Elizabeth Barber NEW YORK/BOSTON (Reuters) - A record breaking winter storm walloped the northeastern United States on Monday, burying Boston to force the delay of its Super Bowl victory parade and leaving behind more than a foot (30 cm) of snow in the Chicago area. The second major storm in less than a week pummeled residents from New York City to Boston with snow, freezing rain and gusty winds, and was blamed for at least four deaths. Boston, already blanketed by two feet (60 cm) of snow from a blizzard last week and predicted to get another foot, set a record for the snowiest seven-day period in the city's history. Heavy snowfall expected to last until about midnight prompted Mayor Marty Walsh to postpone by one day until Wednesday the parade to celebrate the New England Patriots' 28-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Sunday's National Football League championship game.

California day care center shuts down after baby contracts measles

By Dan Whitcomb LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A day care center at a Southern California high school has been closed after a baby enrolled in the program was diagnosed with measles amid an outbreak that has already infected more than 100 people nationwide, the Los Angeles Times reported on Monday. The infant was enrolled at the child-care center at Santa Monica High School, where a freshman baseball coach contracted measles last month, the Times reported. A spokeswoman for the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School district could not immediately be reached for comment by Reuters. The spokeswoman told the Times that the baby was under the age of 12 months and therefore could not be immunized for measles.
