A powerful blizzard is barreling down on the Northeast.

Boston could get as much as three feet of snow before it's all over Saturday afternoon.

Salt and sand is being loaded into trucks in cities across the region.

Still, in Boston and other areas where the snow is moving in it may not be enough.

In Connecticut 19 cars were part of a pile-up that started when a driver lost control on the ice,
and as conditions get worse the Governor of Massachusetts has closed roads across the entire state.

Air travel is also out.

More than 3,000 flights have already been canceled and that number is expected to grow.

Adding to the wintery mess are hurricane force winds that could threaten power lines across the area.

"That's our biggest concern," said Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy. "This storm presents variables that could produce some pretty extraordinary winds."

With the potential of being holed-up inside for several days families are making a last minute dash to make sure they have what they need to get through the storm.

"This is going to be a very serious weather event. If we get the amount of snow forecast, the recovery will be slow. People should prepare for that," urged Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick.

The Blizzard Warning has been extended in the Boston area until one o'clock Saturday afternoon.
