A huge snowstorm is hammering the east coast of the US, knocking out power to more than half a million people, shutting down roads and forcing people to stay home. As much as a meter of snow could fall before it ends.
New Englanders are stocking up and locking up for the "Juno" snowstorm. But in order for them to be able to say "I survived a blizzard," they'll need Juno to do three things. Can you guess them?
US meteorologists and government officials have defended a decision to close New York ahead of a storm cell predicted to be the 'worst ever.' Winter Storm Juno failed to dump the amount of snow predicted by forecasters.
From Boston to New York City and Philadelphia, streets across the northeast of the US have been shut down as extreme snowfall forces driving bans and halts public transport. Tens of millions of people have been affected.
Despite the dramatic warnings by weather experts, winter storm Juno has brought only a moderate snowfall to the New York City. Connecticut and Massachusetts were still at risk, according to the National Weather Service.
