So far the impact of a major snow storm in the U.S. northeast is minimal for Costa Rica. Each year snow or heavy rains slow transportation, and now New York is expected to get up to three feet of snow. New England also is expected to feel the effects of the storm.
United has canceled two flights out of New York today, and Jetblue has canceled one scheduled for the Daniel Oduber airport in Liberia. That means some tourists might be delayed in arriving or making a return flight. In the United States there have been more than 6,000 cancellations.
A high-impact winter storm is expected to bring crippling snowfall amounts and life-threatening blizzard conditions to much of the Northeast, said the U.S. National Weather Service.
However, the New York Daily news was more alarming:
IT’S A BIG APPLE LOCKDOWN! NYC subway system, commuter railroads, bridges and tunnels all shut down; cars will not be allowed on roads and all schools will be closed Tuesday.
Early today the snowfall was heaviest in Pennsylvania.
In Costa Rica the winds and choppy Pacific seas continue. A report from the Pacific said that a woman and a child had died in the surf when they were caught in an undertow. A full report still is not available.
