Snow Storm 2016, A massive snowstorm that blanketed the East Coast moved out to sea on Sunday, leaving 18 people dead, near-record snowfall in some major cities and heavy flooding along the coast. Residents emerged with snowplows and shovels, and tens of thousands of stranded travelers were scrambling to get to their destinations or find alternate arrangements.
The morning arrived on the Eastern Seaboard with low temperatures and clear skies, as states and cities assessed the storm’s impact and outlined cleanup efforts that could last well into the week.
“Happy Sunday to all,” Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York said at the first of a several news conferences scheduled on Sunday morning. “We survived, and then some.”
In New York City, where the storm left more than 30 inches of snow in some parts, grappling with its sheer volume was the next order of business.
More than 10 states on the Eastern Seaboard declared states of emergency.
At 7 a.m. on Sunday a travel ban imposed by New York State and city officials on Saturday afternoon was lifted. Tunnels and bridges into the city, all of which had been closed during the storm, reopened as well, according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Service had been suspended during the storm on the Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North Railroad, as well as the aboveground routes of the subway and the Staten Island Railway. Also at 7 a.m., some Metropolitan Transportation Authority buses began rolling again.
Snow stopped falling around 10 p.m. on Saturday, leaving a total of 26.8 inches in Central Park, according to the National Weather Service, the second-highest amount recorded since 1869.
