A powerful winter storm that was expected to bring at least a foot of snow is pummeling the Northeast, canceling flights, disrupting travel for millions of people along the I-95 corridor and creating hazardous conditions. In New York City, a forecast of up to two feet of snow by Tuesday could make the snowstorm one of the biggest in the city’s history. Coronavirus vaccine sites in the New York metro area were closed because of the storm. And outdoor subway service in New York City will be suspended starting at 2 p.m. on Monday, officials said. Warnings were also in place for a large swath of the Eastern United States, disrupting vaccinations in Washington, Philadelphia, New Jersey and elsewhere.

Norwegian MP Petter Eide has nominated the Black Lives Matter movement for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. The group, which started with a hashtag in 2012 after the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida, has grown into a social juggernaut and has changed the way people talk about police brutality and inequality. The deadline for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize's submission is February 1, and any politician serving at a national level can submit nominations. The winner will be chosen in October.

The first nor'easter of 2021 was expected to bring up to two feet of snow to New York City and other parts of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast Monday. The strong onshore winds from the storm may bring the highest water levels into New York City since Superstorm Sandy in 2012, which could overtop the seawall. “The city should see the highest water levels tonight in the run-up to high tide,” which occurs around 12 a.m. on Tuesday, according to Bill Goodman, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
