New York City “Historic” Snow Fall

News: 30 January 2015 

Heavy snow was predicted to fall from New York City, Cape Cod, Boston and New Hampshire in the last week of January 2015.

Snow combined with gusty winds did lead to whiteout conditions, and travel bans were in place across much of the area.

New York governor Andrew Cuomo announced that the state would slowly return to normal operations after shutting down virtually all transit and roads in preparation for a “historic” blizzard that was far less severe than expected.

New York City subway trains, commuter railroads, and bus service are coming back into service. Roads are also being re-opened in consultation with neighbouring states, especially New Jersey. There are still warnings that people should avoid unnecessary travel, especially in areas that were hit hard by the storm.

He also defended the decisions that were made to shut down train service and roadways. Cuomo said that closing streets and moving trains to protect them from the elements will help bring service back online more quickly than if they had continued running during the storm.

Due to the snow storm your shipment out of the USA might be affected and delays might accrue. If you have any questions please feel free to contact your Malcolm Total Logistics representative on 0800 786 786.
