As eight inches of snow accumulated in the Lower Hudson Valley, downpours drenched coastal cities, causing flooding in some regions, the National Weather Service said.

Flood warnings were in effect Monday morning for parts of New York City, including:  Brooklyn, Staten Island, Queens, the Bronx and Manhattan.

Snow will continue to fall at a rate of one-to-two inches per hour from northwest Pennsylvania to northern New York and into western and northern New England, NWS forecasters said. 

Winter storm warnings remained in effect from southern New York to Northern New England, said CNN meteorologist Jennifer Gray.

‘The I-95 corridor has pretty much been the dividing line between rain and snow,’ she said on air. ‘The snow has really been in interior sections and all the rain along the coast.’

New York Governor Kathy Hochul gave residents a stern warning: ‘Please stay home. But if your work requires you to be out or you have to be somewhere, make sure that you are fortified even in your own vehicle with food and water and whatever else you may need, including blankets or clothing.’ 

The wind-driven storm is being blamed for at least two deaths after it dumped more than a foot of snow across the Midwest and South East. 

Two people died when Sunday night when their car went off road and collided with trees in Raleigh, North Carolina. 

The crash happened as the brutal storm was already caused chaos across much of the country, bringing tornadoes, heavy snowfall, power outages for 260,000 and cancelations of over 3,000 flights.

Now the extreme weather is battering  the northeast, with torrents of snow, sleet and rain triggering widespread flood warnings.

Areas such as central Mississippi and central North Carolina received around nine inches of snow over the weekend, while parts of central South Carolina had up to a half-inch of ice, according to the NWS. 

Forecasters said wind gusts in New York City could top out around 45 mph and around 60 mph on Long Island.

NWS meteorologists in Boston said wind gusts could reach 70 mph.

The howling winds spread a fire that destroyed a motel and two other structures in coastal Salisbury, Massachusetts, early Monday.

The storm also triggered several tornadoes Sunday, with one twister wiping out mobile home parks in Fort Meyers, Florida, leaving upward of 200 residents homeless.

Shocking video footage showed how the tornado obliterated the local Tropicana RV resort; the nearby Cottage Point Trailer Park was also hit.

Lee County Commissioner Cecil Pendergrass said 28 homes were destroyed and another 62 were rendered unlivable.
