Winter Storm Buries US East Coast Under Snow


A winter storm has dumped record-setting snowfall in New York City, while disrupting air travel across the northeastern United States while cutting power to thousands of people.

U.S. weather officials said Sunday that 68.3 centimeters of snow had accumulated in New York's Central Park, the largest snowfall since recordkeeping began in 1869.

Officials closed airports in New York City, and air traffic was disrupted at other key cities. Service has since resumed at Ronald Reagan National airport in Washington.

Travel warnings were issued for large parts of New England as the storm moved northward late Sunday.
