See photos from Winter Storm Quinn.

The East Coast experienced its second nor’easter in a week on Wednesday after Winter Storm Quinn pummeled the region with intense snow bands. Over 2,500 domestic flights were canceled and traffic on highways came to a halt, as the storm created a nightmare for both travelers and commuters.


In New York City, a rare bout of thundersnow was reported. The phenomenon occurs when a storm system involving thunder and lightning also drops snow. See the latest photos from the storm.
