New York City Schools Canceled: NYC Gets Fourth Snow Day In Six Years
It's the second snow day there this month, but only the fourth in the past six years.
As late as Thursday, Mayor Mike Bloomberg said school would be on. But spokesman Stu Loeser says conditions have made him change his mind.
The city has received 10 inches of snow, and more is expected.
From Pennsylvania through New England, utility companies are preparing for power outages caused by the combination of snow and strong winds. Gusts of 50 mph have been reported across the region.
Officials are blaming the wind for fanning a hotel fire in Hampton, N.H., and destroying an entire block of businesses.
