In photos: First major winter storm takes aim at Northeast after blanketing Midwest in snow

New York City and New Jersey declared states of emergency and Philadelphia issued a "snow emergency" Sunday night, as a monster snowstorm that pummeled parts of California and the Midwest began to hit the Northeast.

The big picture: The storm system is expected to impact about 110 million people with heavy snow, rain and strong winds. With up to 18 inches of snow forecast for parts of New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) directed agencies to mobilize emergency response resources. COVID-19 vaccinations were postponed in New York, N.J. and Washington D.C.


Snowfall reports received as of 9 pm Sunday evening. Highest totals by state thus far:
WV - Aurora 12.5"
MD - McHenry 11"
VA - Wintergreen 9.7"
OH - Van Wert 7.8"
NC - Newland 6.5"
NJ - Stanton 5.5"
PA - Huffs Church 4.5"
DE - Woodside 4"
NY - Waverly 2.8" pic.twitter.com/1rzJjbQq4O
