‘Bomb cyclone’ winter storm brings snow, fierce winds to Northeast as bitter cold to follow

(Worthy News) – A rapidly-intensifying winter storm system known as a “bomb cyclone” targeted the Northeast on Thursday after leaving its deadly mark across the Southeast, snarling travel across the region with snow, ice, bone-chilling winds and a central air pressure similar to that of the devastating Superstorm Sandy.

The wicked winter weather left at least three people dead in North Carolina due to vehicle accidents. Two men died Wednesday night when their truck overturned into a creek in Moore County southwest of the Raleigh-Durham area. Sgt. Michael Baker identified the two killed to the Associated Press as the driver, 57-year-old Michael Alexander Wilson, and a passenger, 73-year-old Jerry David Wilson. Both were from Bear Creek.

In a separate crash early Thursday, a driver slid off a road in snowy conditions and overturned his vehicle in Beaufort County. [ Source: Fox News (Read More…) ]
