Winter Storm Brings A Snow Day To Tallahassee

Winter Storm Brings A Snow Day To Tallahassee

In Tallahassee, numerous vehicle crashes were reported and officials closed off about 55 miles of Interstate 10 in north Florida because of ice.

While the frigid temperatures were expected to persist for a few more days, there was no more precipitation in the forecast for that time, so people in Florida might have to wait another 30 years to see snow in their yards again.

Kids in Florida who have never seen snow got a chance to play by building snowmen and making snow angels.

Even parts of Georgia received more snow, with it reaching upwards of three inches in Valdosta and Savannah.

In North Carolina, locally a half foot or more of snow piled up in eastern sections of the state, including in New Bern. Because of this "bomb cyclone", as it is known, forecasters have issued winter storm warnings from northern Florida to New England, a rare occurrence.

Officials closed portions of the highway, and schools were canceled out of an abundance of caution, Wool said, as freezing rain that preceded the snow made some roadways slick.

Luxturna gene therapy approved for vision loss
This rare genetic defect causes severe visual impairment beginning in infancy and can eventually lead to blindness. And the company is also working on covering patients' out of pocket costs as part of the overall price.

It marks the first snowfall in 28 years in Tallahassee.

The storm is also expected to drop potentially heavy snows along parts of the East Coast, though exactly how much snow will fall will depend on how closely the storm hugs the coastline.

Up to two-tenths of an inch of ice was reported in Charleston County, South Carolina, before precipitation changed to snow on the afternoon of January 3.

In Orlando, Florida's largest theme parks announced that water attractions such as Disney's Typhoon Lagoon, Universal Orlando's Volcano Bay and SeaWorld's Aquatica were closed Wednesday because of the cold snap. Accumulations of 3 to 5 inches (8 to 13 centimeters) were possible in eastern North Carolina. A massive front is bringing some of the coldest temperatures in years to parts of Florida.

Zoo visitors, however, shouldn't expect to see any lions, elephants or gorillas native to Africa on view.

Making the most of the Souths bitter cold snap, the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro offered discounted tickets for those willing to fearless the cold to see polar bears frolic in their kind of weather, along with Arctic foxes and elk.
