Winter Storm Nemo hits NYC
High winds whipped the heavy snowfall into a blizzard, dumping a total of 11.4 inches of snow in Central Park. The storm was rated a 3 out of 5 on the Northeast Snowfall Impact Scale, classifying it as a major winter storm. On parts of Long Island, snow totals over two feet were even recorded! Governor Cuomo declared a state of emergency in New York and commuter trains out of the city were largely canceled, with subway service within the city remaining operational.
