CNN stated: “top officials warned that danger lingered even as the storm headed out into the Atlantic Ocean. Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser said that dropping temperatures still pose a risk. ‘We will see continued slick and dangerous roadways, so continue to stay off the road,’ she told reporters Sunday evening. Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said her city had experienced a ‘historic snow event.’ ‘I’m asking for residents to continue to be patient. … A record amount of snow must be removed,’ she said. In New Jersey, some residents said they were reeling from flooding that was worse than devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy. ‘There was much more water. … Everybody was affected. It was bad,’ said Keith Laudeman, who owns a restaurant in Cape May, New Jersey.”
