Overnight East Coast Developments

According to The Weather Channel – 7 million people are without power this morning, more than 1 million of those in New York. Davis, West Virginia has already seen 18 inches of snowfall with much more expected in the next 48 hours.

Early this morning, President Obama declared New York and Long Island “major disaster areas”. This makes federal relief funding available for folks affected in the area.

According to CNN: The storm has claimed the lives of at least 16 in the United States.. This brings the death toll to 84 after the storm wreaked havoc on the Caribbean last week. Also, a levee broke early this morning in Moonachie, New Jersey leaving up to 1000 people in need of rescue due to several towns being in up to 4 to 5 feet of water.

More updates to come as things develop. -Greg
