2015 NADA: Returning Home? Travel Bans. Likely The Largest Blizzard In The History Of New York City.

As millions of residents in the Northeast brace for a powerful blizzard set to sweep across the region, states announced travel bans and the suspension or reduction of public transit, thousands of flights were grounded, and officials urged people to leave work early before heavy snow and high winds would make travel treacherous.

In New York City, officials warned that the storm could be one of the most powerful blizzards ever recorded. The latest forecasts called for as much as two feet of snow to fall by Tuesday morning, with accumulation in some areas even higher depending on where the heaviest storm bands settle.

“This will most likely be one of the largest blizzards in the history of New York City,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Monday afternoon. He announced schools would be closed Tuesday and ordered all drivers off the roads by 11 p.m. Monday.
