Long Island weather: Nor'easter expected to bring heavy rain, strong winds

Storm brings wind flooding and snow to US Northeast

Passenger railroad Amtrak halted service between Boston and Washington through Friday, and said it was suspending southbound service out of the US capital until at least Saturday morning because of downed trees on the track.

The Northeast is already bracing for impact, with airlines like JetBlue, American, Delta and Southwest warning of flight cancelations and allowing customers to rebook their flights free of charge.

The storm knocked out power to 500,000 residences and businesses from MI to North Carolina. The airport in Northern Virginia has runways that are more closely aligned with the gusty winds that were kicked up Friday by the nor'easter.

Trump is heading Friday to North Carolina for the Rev. Billy Graham's funeral. This is a huge storm with a wide range of issues. Heavy snow fell from OH to upstate NY and on eastward.

"Total wet snow accumulations of 1 to 4 inches are expected, with locally up to 5 possible over higher terrain in northwest Rhode Island", the advisory says.

Passenger railroad Amtrak halted service between Boston and Washington through Friday as well as south of the capital because of downed trees blocking tracks. In New Jersey, a downed tree that hit overhead wires and suspended some New Jersey Transit commuter service.

Over 600,000 customers are without power from MA to Virginia.

The federal government closed for the day, along with several area school districts, including Fairfax, Montgomery and Loudoun counties. The Smithsonian museums also shut its doors.

The Barnstable County Multi-Agency Coordination Center was fully operational on Friday afternoon, and will be staffed around the clock until at least Sunday.

The storm will be the most powerful to hit the eastern United States since January. Most of that potential snow, at least for now, is predicted in the central and western parts of the state. Thousands of homes lost power.

Police in Quincy, Massachusetts, were using heavy front-end loaders to rescue people from flooded homes.
