The Northeast is preparing for one of the strongest storms in the last decade; with officials warning of coming power outages and conditions that could dump over 2-3 feet of snow across the region.
The Weather Channel is saying that 28 million people are now under blizzard warnings, and an additional 11 million are under winter storm warnings. The storm, which could dump as much as 3 feet of snow across a 250-mile stretch, is expected to bring blizzard-like conditions from Maryland to Maine.
Unprepared people are scrambling to find last-minute supplies, as grocery stores across the region have been overrun by panicked shoppers. Stores throughout the Northeast have been completely cleaned out, with unprepared shoppers rushing from store to store just trying to find something to help them make it through the storm.
So many people are completely unprepared, that area grocery stores actually have lines around the block just to get into the store.
