Between January 20 and 24, NASA published photos taken from National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) satellite of the massive blizzard that paralysed Washington, New York, and other northeastern US cities.
By midnight on Saturday, New York City experienced its second-biggest storm ever with 26.8 inches of snowfall. The record was set in 2006 with 26.9 inches.
