Hell’s Kitchen was bracing itself this morning for one of New York’s biggest snowstorms. Weather forecasters are predicting that 1-2 inches per hour will fall throughout the day and into tomorrow. At times winds will gust up to 40 miles per hour, bringing near-blizzard conditions.
Mayor Bill de Blasio added to yesterday’s restrictions by issuing a State of Emergency until 6am tomorrow morning (Tuesday) that restricts all vehicles on New York City roads except for essential and emergency travel.
We took a look at sunrise this morning at the state of the roads and sidewalks in the area.
The last winter snowfall of this intensity was in January 2016 when Snowpocalypse landed 27 inches of the white stuff on the city!
