The weather phenomenon hit the northeastern United States on Tuesday, causing the biggest snowfall in Manhattan in two years.

Pennsylvania, which experienced its heaviest snowfall in two years, was one of the areas hardest hit by the storm, with authorities reporting they had responded to 1,200 weather-related accidents, which also left nearly 140,000 people without power. Similarly, in the state of New Jersey there were more than 250 accidents on the road, according to Governor Phil Murphy.

New York City also experienced a historic snowfall, and more than 7 centimeters of snow accumulated in the iconic Central Park, ending the ‘drought’ in the city, which had not exceeded 5 centimeters of snow in 744 days. , from January 29, 2022.

Mayor Eric Adams recommended that New Yorkers stay at home this Tuesday, although many took advantage of the occasion to walk around the city and enjoy the snow, which looked like a scene from a movie. Mayor Eric Adams told New Yorkers not to underestimate the storm. “Let’s let Mother Nature do her thing,” he said. “The goal is to keep our roads clear and we hope that people use public transport or, better yet, stay home”

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation temporarily reduced the speed limit on several interstates to 72 km/h in the east-central region of the state due to the storm.
