US East Coast Blizzard: At Least Six People Killed, 4000+ Flights Canceled
Local Editor

At least six people had died and more than 4,000 US flights had been canceled due to a massive winter storm hitting the East Coast, with heavy snow, gusty winds and the coldest air of the season.

State officials said three of the deaths occurred in North Carolina and a fourth happened in South Carolina, as the weather system barreled up the eastern coast.

Among those killed were two men whose pickup truck slid off a road and overturned into a creek Wednesday night, North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said at a press conference this morning. The storm has also caused hundreds of car crashes around the Tar Heel State, Cooper said.

Two people were killed in Virginia on Thursday, according to authorities. A 75-year-old man in Hampton was clearing snow from a business parking lot when he suffered life-threatening injuries from a snowplow, while a young girl was killed while sledding down a driveway in Chester, police said.

The girl slid into the path of a Toyota Tacoma as it drove down the street. She was hit and later died at the hospital as a result of her injuries, according to police. Her age and identity were not released.

Meanwhile, US airlines canceled at least 4,020 flights within, into and out of the United States as of 5 p.m. today, according to airline tracking firm FlightAware. Most of the cancellations were in New Jersey, Boston and New York.

Major cities along the East Coast -- from North Carolina to Maine -- were under blizzard warnings, while others were placed under winter storm warnings.

Snowfall totals include nearly 17 inches in southern New Jersey and 16 inches on parts of the Jersey Shore. In New York City's outer boroughs, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx have all reported 11 to 13 inches of snow.

Maine Gov. Paul LePage announced that all state offices will be closed today. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie also closed all state offices and declared a state of emergency in three coastal counties.

Flooding was causing some of the biggest issues in Massachusetts, where icy water was surging through coastal streets, including in Boston.
