Storm barrels up Atlantic Coast
by UPI

NEW YORK - Police reported three storm-related traffic deaths from a snowstorm that blew into New England Monday after burying states along the U.S. Atlantic Coast.

Separate crashes on icy roads Sunday claimed the lives of Jose Fuentes, 57, in Greenlawn, N.Y.; Ray A. Charles, 23, in Medford, N.Y.; and an unidentified man on Route 78 in Newark, N.J., Newsday and The (Newark) New Jersey Star-Ledger reported.

The storm left nearly a foot of heavy wet snow in parts of New York and states south to the Carolinas, canceling hundreds of flights in airports from Nashville to Boston, where as much as 15 inches of snow was expected.

Parts of New York could see up to 18 inches of snow by Monday night with accumulations reaching up to 12 inches south to Washington and into Maryland, The New York Times and The Washington Post (NYSE:WPO) reported.

State troopers in Massachusetts reported a 20-car pileup and several smaller pileups along the South Shore, The Boston Globe reported.

"It's the first of March, which you know is the month that we say comes in like a lion and out like a lamb," said New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, adding "it's pretty clear that the lions are getting ready to roar."
