As of 7 p.m. ET, snowfall totals in New York City are close of 5 inches in Queens and more than 4 inches in Central Park, the National Weather Service says. In parts of Pennsylvania, as much as 3 inches.
Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo tells residents to prepare for 2 to 3 feet of snow and expect to potentially be without power for days. “Stay in your house until you hear otherwise,” Raimondo warns.
