On the Radar: Blizzard in Northeast U.S., bomb blocked in Italy

Baby, it's cold outside: Travelers in the northeastern U.S. are stuck Monday because several major airports are closed due to blizzard conditions. All three airports in the New York City area are shuttered, and blizzard warnings are in effect for parts of New England. More than 2,500 flights have been canceled across the country since the storm began, airline representatives said. Watch for live weather and flight updates in New York and Philly on CNN.

Italy embassy bomb: Police in Italy say a package containing an explosive was found at the Greek Embassy in Rome. Suspicious packages were also found at the Venezuelan and Danish embassies. It was the second time in as many weeks that authorities have responded to reports of suspicious packages at embassies in the city. Packages exploded at the Swiss and Chilean embassies last week.

Pakistan drone attack: Two suspected U.S. drone strikes killed 18 militants in Pakistan on Monday. Based on CNN's count, there have been 108 drone strikes this year, which is more than double the number in 2009. Monday's was the latest in a series of aerial assaults targeting insurgents in North Waziristan, one of seven districts in Pakistan's volatile tribal region bordering Afghanistan. In one attack, a suspected drone fired four missiles on a militant vehicle in the Mir Ali area, two intelligence officials said. Six people were killed.

    FDNY is pulling EMS units out of the snow, the back log is a mess. Last nite a Ladder Co. delivered a baby, four hours later EMS was able to get there. Mayor Blummy wants NYers to know the ballet and museams are open today! What a bozo. How long before he calls up the Natinal Guard?

    I hope his honor or his fatcat friends dont need fire or ems But if and when they do during this storm or its aftermath, bet he makes some changes. It is sad that the common man has to rely on the rich.

    I'll still take a cold environment anyday- it minimizes the freeloaders and street riff raff. Not only do we pull together in times of crisis but it reminds us that if you don't work, events can turn bad pretty quickly. I've seen many storms and power outages in Buffalo but never saw a FEMA trailer. There is a sense of community, doing for others, compassion and sucking it up to do what has to be done w/o reliance or finger pointing. Christopher Dycha
