By Barbara Goldberg and Idrees Ali NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A blizzard that has paralyzed much of the U.S. East Coast intensified on Saturday, bringing the nation's capital to a standstill and forcing the closure of roads, bridges and tunnels into New York, the largest city in the country. At least 13 people have been killed in weather-related car crashes in Arkansas, North Carolina, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee and Virginia. One person died in Maryland and three in New York while shoveling snow.
