A nor'easter officially hit the US East Coast on Friday morning, and is expected to affect coastal cities from Georgia to Maine.
Like the powerful storm that slammed the East Coast on January 4, meteorologists are describing this new nor'easter as a "bomb cyclone." The term essentially means that the barometric pressure is dropping quickly.
On Thursday, The National Weather Service of Boston warned on Twitter, "Take this storm seriously! This is a LIFE & DEATH situation for those living along the coast."
On Friday morning, NOAA captured this mesmerizing GIF of the nor'easter from space using its GOES-16 satellite:
Forecasters say that the nor'easter could knock out power, damage or destroy homes, and flood neighborhoods up and down the coast. New York could see 10 inches of snow or more, and some parts of New England could get three to four inches of rain.
Due to worries that the storm could delay flights, airlines including American, Delta, JetBlue, United, and Southwest have put out warnings, and are allowing customers to change their Friday and Saturday reservations.
