NEW YORK (AP) — A dangerous winter storm is whipping the East Coast with significant snowfall, strong thunderstorms and blustery winds Monday.

Meteorologists said a foot or more of snow fell in parts of New York state, Ohio and Pennsylvania through Monday morning. New York City was spared most of the snowfall. Sleet and rain are the main threats for much of Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. Road conditions were also a concern. Plow truck drivers were scattered along roads and highways in the region in the early morning hours.

The storm forced the closure of many COVID-19 vaccination and testing sites in the northeast.
