Biden postpones foreign policy speech

中新网报道,1日,纽约市迎来近5年来最大的暴风雪,已于早上6时宣布进入紧急状态,官员们正在努力让所有人尽可能远离公路。纽约市长白思豪1日表示:“远离道路。这不仅仅是我给你的建议,这是市政府的具体命令。纽约市已经进入紧急状态。”

In addition, New York Governor Cuomo also announced on the 1st that 44 counties including New York City, Hudson Valley and Long Island have entered a state of emergency.The governor also issued a warning to passengers and commuters that ground subway services, as well as some services of LIRR and Metro-North, may be severely delayed or interrupted on the afternoon of the 1st.

In addition, if the snowfall reaches the expected two to three inches per hour, the Long Island Expressway, I-84 and some other major roads may face travel bans.The government urges New York residents to avoid all unnecessary travel.

New Jersey also ushered in heavy snowfall. The governor of the state, Phil Murphy, held a press conference, saying that because the weather would be "very bad", he called on residents to stay home during the storm.

Due to the severe weather brought by the winter storm, US President Biden's foreign policy speech originally scheduled for that day was also postponed to later this week.White House Press Secretary Jan Psaki also stated that the president will “ensure close coordination among federal, state, and local officials in preparing for and responding to weather emergencies.”
