Forecast: East Coast 'bomb cyclone' affecting flights out of DIA

Late on Wednesday night, a baggage auto and two sleeper cars on an Amtrak train travelling from Miami to NY, with 311 passengers onboard, derailed as it was slowly backing into a station in Savannah, Georgia.

"This could bring some very risky conditions", the NY mayor, Bill de Blasio, said late on Wednesday.

BOSTON East Coast residents are bracing for a deep freeze a day after a massive winter storm slammed the region with heavy snow, hurricane-force winds and coastal flooding. Six NYCHA developments, which house more than 15,000 people, all lost heat, hot water, or both at some point, according to New York City Patch. CT opened more than 100 warming centres in 34 towns for those deprived of heat.

Most of the outages were in West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina. "Next Day Air flights arrived at their destinations earlier this morning, and Second Day Air flights are inbound to UPS air hubs for sorting", Mayer said.

Blizzard-like conditions are set to hit a huge area of the east coast, from North Carolina to ME, with New England expected to be one of the worst-hit areas.

Between 8 and 16 inches of snow fell, he said.

To non-meteorologists, this means storm formation.

Delta Airlines has already issued a warning that could impact travelers especially in states that are not as prepared for winter storms and ice, such as Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. The reptiles became immobile when temperatures dipped below 5C.

More than 3,500 U.S. airline flights were canceled. Amtrak had cut back on train service between Boston and NY, according to a statement. New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority reported delays and service changes on more than a dozen subway lines. Virginia Beach also falls in Winter Storm Grayson's path. In Boston, the Logan International Airport reported that 74 per cent of its outgoing flights being cancelled.

Turkey issues travel warning for the US citing 'arbitrary detentions' risks
Turkey blames Gulen for orchestrating a failed coup in Turkey in July 2016, a charge Gulen denies. It has only been a few weeks since the two countries lifted visa restrictions against each other.

The wintry weather has been blamed for at least 17 deaths in the past few days, including three in North Carolina traffic accidents and three in Texas because of the cold.

Four people were killed in North Carolina and SC after their vehicles ran off snow-covered roads, authorities said. Three cars on an Amtrak train carrying more than 300 passengers from Miami to NY derailed Wednesday night in snow-covered Savannah, Georgia. Four people were reportedly killed in North and SC after their vehicles ran off roads. No one on the train was hurt.

The storm is expected to pass by Thursday night but will be followed by record-shattering cold weather. 35,000 customers in those areas went without power early this morning, mainly due to high winds and substantial snow fall.

The National Weather service has also warned MA residents not to stand on icebergs as they float down the street, as flooding and cold temperatures create freakish occurrences. However, commuter railways serving NY and Boston's suburbs were reported to be experiencing extensive delays as crews worked to fix frozen equipment and clear snow-covered railway tracks. The upcoming storm, however, will likely bring blizzard colder than Mars and snow in Tallahassee, Florida after 21 years.

High tides also caused flooding in parts of coastal MA, with seawater rising near buildings, including a hotel and along Boston's historic Long Wharf, a popular tourist attraction.

The Massachusetts National Guard said it helped rescue a woman and her two children from a vehicle in Marshfield.

The term for the weather phenomenon has varied over the years.

"For someone in California, this is really, really scary".
