A winter storm with heavy, wet snow caused a Delta Air Lines plane to slide off the runway and led to hundreds of school closings, canceled flights, and power outages in parts of the Northeast on Tuesday. According to the National Weather Service, snow totals by the time it winds up Wednesday were expected to range from a few inches to a few feet, depending on the area. While higher elevations get snow, authorities warned residents in coastal areas to watch for possible flooding due to heavy rains. The storm affected parts of New England, upstate New York, northeastern Pennsylvania, and northern New Jersey. The snowfall totals were expected to be among the highest of the season, according to the National Weather Service. In California, crews rushed to repair a levee break on a storm-swollen river in California’s central coast as another atmospheric river arrived that could cause more problems.
