New York City Has Banned Travel Because Of The Blizzard

New York City has banned travel because of the blizzard. Gov. Andrew Cuomo said forecasters now say up to 30 inches of snow could fall in parts of southern New York. He said inbound and outbound Metro-North and Long Island Rail Road trains will stop running around 4 p.m. ET.

“This is bad and it’s getting worse rapidly,” New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

Here are the latest developments on the massive winter storm and blizzard:

Nationwide:
Eight people have died due to the storm: Six in North Carolina, one in Virginia and one in Kentucky.

Eleven states have declared states of emergency: Georgia, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Kentucky, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Virginia and West Virginia. Washington has declared a “snow emergency.”

More than 8,600 flights have been canceled through Sunday, according to FlightAware.com.

More than 200,000 customers in 13 states are without power because of the storm. Most of them, about 140,000, are in the Carolinas.

About 33 million people are under blizzard warnings.

State by state:
New Jersey: “Significant flooding” related to the blizzard forced more than 50 people from their homes around Atlantic City, said Vince Jones, the city’s emergency management director. Jones said that an “extremely high” tide and strong winds “really pushed the water up from the ocean onto the streets.”

Washington, D.C.: About 13 inches of snow has fallen and another 10 inches is possible by the time the storm passes, Mayor Muriel Bowser said. Wind gusts of about 50 mph have been reported.

Kentucky: Motorists were stranded along a 35-mile stretch of Interstate 75 for up to 19 hours, from Friday afternoon to Saturday morning. Traffic is reported to be moving again.

Pennsylvania: Cars and buses were stuck on a westbound portion of the Pennsylvania Turnpike between Breezewood and New Stanton, State Police Capt. Brian Milore told the media. Among them was a bus carrying the Duquesne University men’s basketball team. National Guard members are helping the stranded motorists, a post on the turnpike’s Twitter feed said.

West Virginia: National Guard members were dispatched to help move stuck tractor trailers that blocked a roughly 11-mile stretch of Interstate 77 north of Charleston. The state’s emergency management agency said late Friday that the highway was “completely shut down.”

Brent Bozell Endorses Ted Cruz For President

Brent Bozell is one of the most respected and effective conservative movement leaders in the nation. He has long been at the forefront of the most important issues to conservatives across the country — from defunding Obamacare, to opposing amnesty, to fighting for concessions on the debt ceiling before Republican leadership capitulated to the Democrats, and so much more.

Brent wants a leader who will unapologetically fight for conservative principles, and that’s why he’s endorsing Ted Cruz for President:

In his endorsement video, Brent said:

Today I wholeheartedly endorse Ted Cruz for President of the United States and urge all conservatives nationwide to rally behind Ted immediately.

The Republican Party establishment is counting on conservatives being divided so that they can again nominate a moderate, do-nothing candidate.

Make no mistake: If the Republican Party repeats what it has done the last two presidential elections, Republicans will lose. I guarantee it.

On the other hand, if we nominate a principled, passionate conservative America can count on to restore her greatness, there will be an outpouring of support.

We need a courageous conservative who tells the truth and does what he promises.

We need to nominate an inspiring leader who has proven he is willing to take on the Washington Cartel and buck the political establishment of both parties.

We need a leader who will win, and reignite the promise of America.

There are some good conservatives running for president, but we need more than a campaign conservative – we need a consistent conservative who has led the fights important to us.

Ted Cruz is this leader.

I support Ted Cruz for President unconditionally and enthusiastically…l
