Massive Winter Storm Paralyzes US states
I woke up to the sad news that many north eastern US states, included New York and Washington were battered by a major snowstorm.
AP news reported that the storm dumped as much as 3 feet of snow on the eastern United States raising flood waters in communities up and down the Atlantic Coast Saturday, closing roads and prompting evacuations.
From what I learned over 19 people have been confirmed dead from weather related incidents.
"Thirteen people were killed in from car crashes in Arkansas, North Carolina, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee and Virginia on Saturday. One person died in Maryland and three in New York City while shoveling snow. Two died of hypothermia in Virginia, officials said." Rueters.
We believe were are experiencing a tail (if you will) in sections of Jamaica, as it is much cooler (70-75 F) with intermittent showers, and has been like that for the last couple of days. But we have a lot to be thankful for.
On behalf of all Jamaicans, I just want to extend our moral support to the people of the US who are impacted, especially those who are ardent Jamaican enthusiast.
Remember my peeps, keep the faith... "This too shall pass".
