AS Storm Izzy makes its way across the US, 200,000 have been left without power, 2,700 flights were canceled, and five states have declared states of emergency.

The storm will end up affecting huge portions of the country as it heads for the Northeast Sunday after battering the South with snow, ice, and wind.

So far, governors in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia have all declared states of emergency as they attempt to deal with the massive storm.

Up to 12 inches of snow had already fallen in parts of western North Carolina as of Sunday morning.

In the Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina, area, four to six inches were reported early Sunday, with snow continuing to fall at around one inch per hour.

The Weather Channel reports that this is the area’s heaviest snow fall in eight years.

In the areas that have already been smacked by the storm, more than 200,000 power outages have already been reported, according to poweroutage.us.

In South Caroline alone, more than 98,000 outages were reported.

Airlines are also seeing major affects of the storm, with around 2,700 flights in the US canceled due to the weekend weather.

As of around noon on Sunday, FlightAware reported that 2,726 flights within, into, or out of the US had been canceled.

In addition to the heavy snow, sleet and rain are also a concern in certain parts of the South.

Some sleet was reported in eastern North Carolina and just inland from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, according to the Weather Channel. The Atlanta metro area was also reportedly logging some freezing rain.

The conditions are making travel a nightmare for much of the eastern US, hence the states of emergency declared in Southeast.

IZZY’S SUNDAY PATH

Snow is expected to continue in parts of Mississippi and Alabama into Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia, and across the Appalachians peaks on Sunday.

On Sunday night, snow that could be mixed with freezing rain is expected to spread up through mid-Atlantic states and into the rest of the Northeast.

The wintry mix is expected to switch over to rain Sunday into Sunday night when it begins to fall along the I-95 corridor in Washington, DC, Philadelphia, and New York City.

On Monday, parts of Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York and up to New England may experience heavy, wind-driven snow.

Areas closer to the coast will likely see more rain, though it could change back to snow briefly before the storm fully moves out.

Much of the Northeast, particularly New England, could also get strong winds with the potential for wind damage.

Much of the Eastern US is expected to be affected by the storm
