The Great Appalachian Storm
A storm rapidly deepened as it tracked inland along the eastern slopes of the Appalachians. A wind gust of 83 mph was recorded at Albany, N.Y., the strongest ever, with sustained winds of 50 to 60 mph. Many trees and power lines were blown down across the region, and wind damage was extensive in New York State.

This storm turned the busiest travel day of the year into a nightmare, with many stranded travelers not making it to their destinations.
