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.
