East Coast blizzard bids for place in Washington DC history

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 01/23/2016 - 07:08

Commuters make their way past Farragut Square on a chilly morning after a light snow fell in WashingtonBy Ian Simpson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A winter storm that could bury parts of the U.S. Middle Atlantic region under nearly three feet of snow slammed into Washington, D.C. on Friday afternoon, threatening the nation's capital with record accumulations as it barrels up the populous East Coast. After emergency officials planned and residents scrambled for days to stock up on supplies, the blizzard started to blanket the Washington area during the early afternoon after six people had died in car crashes as a wintry mix spread across Arkansas, Tennessee and Kentucky. The storm could dump two to two and a half feet (61 to 76 cm) of snow on the capital and bring winds of 30 to 50 mph (48 to 80 kph) before winding down late on Saturday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.
