ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Another severe storm is walloping the East, delaying flights, closing scores of schools and causing cars to slide off roadways.
The National Weather Service has issued winter storm warnings for much of upstate New York. Forecasters say areas outside Albany could get 12 to 16 inches.
Winds are gusting to 30 mph in some areas along Lake Erie.
A 30-mile stretch of the New York Thruway is closed by an accident south of Buffalo. And in Maine, dozens of cars have been reported off the road.
Flights out of New York's metropolitan-area airports are seeing delays. Departures out of Newark Liberty International Airport flight are delayed an average of 3 ½ hours due to rain and wind. Airports in Ohio have reopened amid heavy snow, ice and rain there.
