A winter storm in the south part of the United States killed two people during the weekend of 15 January and traveled up the northeast coast, hitting Pennsylvania and New York.

The southeast received more than nine inches of snow. While this snowstorm was moving, it knocked out power for thousands of people in many areas. Highways were also covered in ice, making it dangerous for those on the road.

Buffalo was predicted to get up to eighteen inches of snow and gusts of winds up to 40 mph.

Near the coasts of New York and Connecticut, residents experienced 60 mph of wind. This strong wind was able to take down a lot of tree branches.

Those who live in New Jersey and New York City coastal areas received flood warnings because of all the snow. By 10:00 a.m. on Monday, 17 January, they canceled more than 1,400 flights.

The two people that died during the storm were killed in a car accident by driving off the road and crashing into trees in North Carolina.
