Several U.S. east coast cities are still struggling to return to normal on Monday following Winter Storm Jonas, a massive weekend blizzard that dropped about two feet of snow on cities including New York and Washington, D.C. At least 20 people have died from storm-related incidents with deaths reported in states stretching from Arkansas to New York.
Storm system Hermine spun away from the U.S. East Coast on Sunday, removing the threat of heavy rain but maintaining enough power to churn dangerous waves and currents and keep beaches off-limits to disappointed swimmers and surfers during the holiday weekend. The National Weather Service said a tropical storm warning remains in effect for New Jersey and Delaware, including Rehoboth Beach, which could experience wind gusts of up to 50 mph and life-threatening storm surges during high tide late Sunday and into Monday.
