BOSTON (AP) - In the Massachusetts community of Whitman, crews today have been clearing away crosswalk signs, trash barrels and anything else that might get in the way of snow plows later today.
Throughout the Northeast, preparations are being made for what could be a record amount of snow today and tomorrow.
Wind gusts could reach 75 miles an hour, and widespread power outages are expected. Coastal areas that saw flooding from Superstorm Sandy could again be inundated.
The snow has already begun in some areas, with the heaviest amounts falling at night and into tomorrow.
In New England, it could prove to be among the top 10 snowstorms in history. Boston could get up to 3 feet of snow, while New York City was expecting 10 to 14 inches. To the south, Philadelphia was looking at a possible 2 to 5 inches.
Amtrak says its Northeast trains will stop running this afternoon.
