Northeast readies for major snowstorm

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) -- People in the Northeast are stocking up on food and supplies, and road crews are getting ready with salt and sand.
 
The region is bracing for a major winter storm that could bring up to 2 feet of snow to places that haven't seen a significant snowfall in more than a year.
 
Forecasters say most of southern New England could see anywhere from 18 to 24 inches between tomorrow and Saturday. Some other forecasts say the totals could be even higher.
 
Part of New York's Long Island is under a blizzard watch, as are parts of Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
 
New York City is expecting between 4 and 6 inches of snow.
 
Forecasters expect the snow to start tomorrow morning, with the heaviest accumulations tomorrow night and into Saturday.
 
Airlines have already canceled hundreds of flights tomorrow.
 
The storm would hit just after the 35th anniversary of the historic blizzard of 1978, which paralyzed the region with more than 2 feet of snow and hurricane-force winds.
