North-east US prepares for winter storm

The north-eastern United States was bracing for more snow as a powerful winter storm blew in after dumping a record snowfall in Arkansas and ruining holiday travel plans.

The storm, blamed for six deaths, is expected to drop one to two feet of snow on parts of the north-east just a day after it swept through the centre of the country. As it arrived, snowfall ranged from a few inches to a dozen in some locations.

The National Weather Service says the heaviest accumulations will be in northern Pennsylvania, upstate New York and inland sections of several New England states before the storm ends tomorrow and heads to Canada.

Yesterday, the storm caused hundreds of flights to be cancelled or delayed and scores of motorists got stuck on icy roads. Blizzard warnings were issued in some areas.
