At a time when everyone is planning to move out of their home for a trip, winter storm Gemini looms over travel plans. The storm gripped Toronto sending across high gusts of wind, freezing rain and low temperatures. Power outage was prevalent in most of the region. As many as 250,000 people were affected by the storm.
According to reports, the power may not be restored before Christmas. “It truly is a catastrophic ice storm that we have had here, probably one of the worst we’ve ever had,” said Toronto Hydro CEO Anthony Haines.
Apart from Toronto, New England continues to face the brunt of heavy storm.
However, it was a different scenario in Philadelphia and New York City as warm temperatures greeted tourists with fervor.
Oklahoma, southwest and central Missouri and southeast Kansas are bracing for ice accumulations, while snow showers are expected in central and eastern Iowa, according to reports.
Tourists are advised to check with local authorities in order to get information on flight and train schedules.
