Wild weather: Heavy snow, floods slam North­east, Mid­west, South

The Commercial Appeal - - Front Page - USA TO­DAY

NEW YORK – Wild weather con­tin­ued to pound much of the eastern U.S. on Mon­day, with flood warn­ings is­sued in New York City and other lo­ca­tions.

Af­ter a deadly week­end dur­ing which at least five peo­ple were killed by weather, the storm was ex­pected to wind down Mon­day.

Mon­day morn­ing, New York City’s emer­gency sys­tem flashed on phones as rain lashed the sky­scrapers of Man­hat­tan and sur­round­ing bor­oughs, ac­com­pa­nied by strong winds and oc­ca­sional thun­der. Area air­ports re­ported wide­spread de­lays.

Flood watches and warn­ings re­mained in place across sev­eral states, from West Vir­ginia to New Hamp­shire.

Mean­while, res­i­dents of the up­per Mid­west were dig­ging out from a record-break­ing spring snow­storm that pounded the Dako­tas, Min­ne­sota and Wis­con­sin with up to 2 feet of snow. One man in Mil­wau­kee suf­fered a heart at­tack and died while shov­el­ing snow.
