With gigantic winter storms sweeping the Northeast, all the way down into the midwest and some parts of the southern regions of the United States, as of Friday (Dec. 23), over 1.4 million homes and businesses were left in the dark. Thousands of flights have been cancelled, derailing holiday travel plans for many.
The original storm was 2,000 miles wide and experts said it was a record setter in history for amount of people and states under extreme weather watch at the same time.
As of early Saturday morning, winds and gusts are lingering around the Great Lakes and Upstate New York, but the bulk of winter storm Elliot and the “bomb cyclone” move up into eastern Canada.
In Lansing, temperatures will stay in the low to upper teens throughout the weekend.
