East Coast residents will be digging out and trying to return to normal in some places today after a blizzard on Friday and Saturday that dumped near-record amounts of snow from Washington, D.C., to New York City.
According to CNN, at least 30 deaths were caused by the storm, due to car crashes, breathing carbon monoxide and heart attacks from shoveling snow.
Federal offices will be closed today, as will state offices in Virginia, and schools are shut down from Washington, D.C., to shore towns in New Jersey.
But it will be a regular school and work day in New York City, which got 26.6 inches in Central Park, just below the all-time record of 26.8 inches, far more than what had been predicted. Airports across the region, however, still have limited service, and major airlines have canceled hundreds of flights for today.
