State of emergency declared as Northeast digs out from blizzard

Residents and officials are continuing to dig out from this weekend’s gusting winter storm that buried parts of the Northeast with up to 3 feet of snow.

President Obama has declared a state of emergency for Connecticut, which means federal money will be used to help state and local response efforts, NBC New York reports.

In Massachusetts, limited subway and bus service will resume at 2 p.m. today. Rhode Island’s public transportation is still suspended. In New York, a stretch of the Long Island Expressway has been closed through 5 p.m. in order to clear the road of snow and abandoned vehicles ahead of the Monday morning commute.

    On the northeast blizzard, “Nemo.” Up to 3 feet of snow is so crazy. NY has about 1 foot, I believe.
