(Newser) – The massive storm pounding the East Coast has left three people dead, hundreds of motorists stranded, and airport schedules in chaos. The fatalities occurred in hard-hit Virginia, where major interstates have been shut down, and the National Guard is helping rescue drivers, reports CNN. Nearly 2 feet has fallen in some areas, and DC has shut down all bus and most rail service, notes the Post. Baltimore, Philadelphia, and cities from Tennessee to North Carolina and up to southern New England are being hit.

"This snow should end early tomorrow morning with a 24-hour cleanup," said DC Mayor Adrian M. Fenty. "We should have a lot of streets ready to go by rush hour Monday. And, hopefully, all of it done between Monday and Wednesday."
