(NEXSTAR) – Wondering which of your friends will spend the most time shoveling snow from the driveway? The National Weather Service recorded impressive totals across several states from the most recent storm surge.

As the storm began to ease Friday afternoon, several states saw a total of one foot north, with the lake effect sending that number as high as 18 inches in Upstate New York, according to the National Weather Service. .

Late Friday, the NWS sent the totals — as of 4:30 ET — to the hardest-hit city in each state from Kentucky to Maine:

  • NY – Cheektowaga / Henderson 18 (lake effect)
  • MA – Green Hill – 15.2
  • WV – New Canaan 15
  • CT – Danielson 13.3
  • RI – Harrisville 12 yen
  • PA – Davis 10.7
  • KY – Lexington 9.9 yen
  • NY – NYC-LGA 9.7 (hurricane)
  • I – Millbridge 9″
  • MD – Thurmont 8
  • OH – Chardon 8 (lake effect)
  • VA – Big Black Mountain 8 ″
  • NJ – Closter 7.3
  • NH – Sandown 6.8
  • OH – Chesapeake 6 (hurricane)
  • DE – Smyrna 4.5 inches
  • Washington DC 3.8 yen
  • NC – 3.5″ Elk Banner
  • VT – Woodford 3

The weather combined with the coronavirus spike this week disrupted classes and flights across the map.

By mid-afternoon Friday, airlines had screened more than 2,600 flights, with the largest number at airports in Boston and the New York City area, according to tracking service FlightAware, according to tracking service FlightAware. .

Drivers in the hardest hit areas are urged to stay off the roads, but there have been reports of crashes around the eastern US.

Tractor driver Michael D’Andrea witnessed the mayhem first-hand. He saw many vehicles rushing out when it was snowing heavily.

“The first storm is always a little bit more dangerous,” said D’Andrea, 34, of Norwood, Massachusetts. “Nobody has driven in weather like this for six months. Everyone has to relearn how to drive in here. And it’s usually not the snow foot that’s the first one. This was almost a blizzard given the speed of its descent. 2022 is about to be a hit, but I think we’re overdue. “

The storm also affected coronavirus testing sites, many of which were overwhelmed with long lines and had to wait for days. Several testing sites in Rhode Island have delayed opening. In Connecticut, most of the state-funded testing sites that normally open on Fridays were closed because of the storm, but some locally operated locations and pharmacies, remained open.

The storm brought record snow to parts of the South on Thursday.

Nashville saw 6.3 inches on Thursday, breaking the city’s previous record of 4 inches on January 6, held since 1977, the weather service said.
