Winter Storm Lorraine Brings School Closures And Travel Disruptions Along East Coast

Schools in Boston and New York City have announced closures as Winter Storm Lorraine approaches the East Coast, causing travel disruptions and hazardous conditions along major roadways.

The Weather Channel named the system Winter Storm Lorraine, which is set to intensify as it moves closer to the region, bringing strong winds and heavy snowfall.

In Morris County, New Jersey, residents are being advised to avoid unnecessary travel due to the expected severe weather conditions.

Boston Mayor Michelle Wu declared a snow emergency and urged residents to stay indoors to ensure safety during the storm.

New York City Public Schools and classes in Boston have also been canceled as a precautionary measure.

Significant snowfall is expected in Central Park and parts of Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut, potentially leading to power outages and coastal flooding.

Airlines such as American Airlines and Delta Air Lines are waiving change fees at major airports along the East Coast to accommodate affected travelers.

Commuters along the Interstate 95 corridor are advised to monitor road conditions and weather updates to navigate the hazardous driving conditions expected during the storm.
