Winter Storm Advisory.
Winter Storm Grayson, a “bomb cyclone,” will bring snow, ice and strong wind gusts along the East Coast and as far south as Florida this week. The storm is a powerful winter hurricane, with features similar to 2012’s storm of the year, Superstorm Sandy. The storm is expected to bring powerful winds, blizzard conditions, and severe cold weather. Major airlines have canceled thousands of flights to and from the eastern seaboard.
Winter Storm Grayson’s path began Wednesday as snow began to fall in Florida and Georgia. The governors of Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia have declared states of emergency, warning residents to expect icy roads and freezing temperatures.
Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia will have less harsh conditions, with less snowfall and strong winds. While most snow will taper off Thursday evening, frigid temperatures will remain into the weekend.
New York City should expect between four and eight inches of snow, while parts of New Jersey and Connecticut could see a foot. Boston could see up to 14 inches of snow, and also has a Coastal Flood Warning in effect for Thursday.
Gallagher Bassett offices throughout the affected regions have taken all precautions to ensure the safety of its employees and the continued claims operation without service disruptions. All emergency and precautionary plans are in effect and operational. We will continue to monitor the storm as it progresses.
