WASHINGTON (NEWS10) – A state of emergency has been declared by Washington D.C., Virginia, Maryland, and North Carolina in advance of the major East Coast blizzard coming this weekend.
Twenty states are now in a Winter Weather Watch for the weekend, and the eye of the storm is expected to land in the nation’s capital.
With up to two feet of snow predicted, people across the east coast are preparing for the worst.
Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has urged residents to have a week’s worth of supplies on hand and promised public works will be prepared, too.
There was chaos before the storm in Washington. Less than one inch of snow turned roads into parking lots on Wednesday. The nation’s capital is projected to get a staggering 30 inches of snow.
