Trees have toppled onto apartment buildings and cars as a blizzard batters the Mid-Atlantic region this morning. Two deaths have been reported.
Airlines canceled flights, Amtrak canceled service and churches called off weekend worship as officials warned people to just stay home.
A record of 2½ feet or more is predicted for Washington alone. As of early Saturday, parts of Maryland had seen up to 20 inches of snow.
Forecasters say it could be the biggest storm in the nation's capital in modern history.
Blizzard warnings have been issued for D.C., parts of New Jersey and Delaware and some areas west of the Chesapeake Bay. Tens of thousands in the region are without power.
