At least two were killed as winter storm Izzy, also known as the “Saskatchewan screamer,” unleashed destruction across the US and dumped more than one foot of snow over parts of the Midwest and South East before moving up the East Coast today.

The severe storm has already wreaked havoc across the United States, bringing about tornadoes, heavy snowfalls, power outages for 260,000, and cancellations of more than 3,000 flights. Now, the severe storm is heading towards New York and the North East, with torrents of snow, sleet, and rainfall prompting flood warnings across the country, a report said.

A large portion of New York, northern Ohio, Virginia, northern Pennsylvania, Maine, and New Hampshire could get up to a foot of snow today, as per FOX weather. Areas that are higher in elevation will likely get two feet of snow. The Weather Channel reported many communities could be brought to a “standstill.”

This storm could also likely bring about some flooding. The National Weather Service (NWS) warned that the winds could reach hurricane force along the Atlantic coast. The majority of the New York City area, including some parts in New Jersey, is under an advisory for coastal flooding, according to the Weather Service.

“If travel is not necessary, stay home,” the Ohio Department of Transportation tweeted. The department has sent out more than 880 crews to clear roads and treat roadways across Ohio.

NYC Mayor Kathy Hochul warned residents to stay home. “Please stay home. But if your work requires you to be out or you have to be somewhere, make sure that you are fortified even in your vehicle with food and water and whatever else you may need, including blankets or clothing.”

Meanwhile, Virginia, Georgia, and North and South Carolina have all declared a state of emergency. Workers are clearing debris, and efforts to restart public transport are ongoing.

Central Mississippi and central North Carolina received around nine inches of snow during the weekend. NWS said that parts of central South Carolina had up to one-half inch of ice.
