NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority will suspend all bus service in New York City at 12 p.m. on Saturday because of blizzard conditions, an official said. The announcement came as a fierce winter storm gripped the region, with up to 18 inches of snow forecast to pile up in city streets before easing later in the day.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — More than 414,000 turkeys and chickens have been killed, some through a method considered a "last resort" of euthanasia, at 10 southwest Indiana farms affected by a bird flu outbreak. Testing and monitoring will continue for weeks to determine if the outbreak of the H7N8 viral strain is contained. That strain is different from one that led to the deaths of more than 48 million birds last summer.
