 New York's Washington Square Park Turns Into Winter Wonderland

Washington Square Park in New York looks like a winter wonderland as the city expects up to 25 centimeters of snow.

Snow fell steadily across New York City throughout the morning, forcing the cancelation of hundreds of flights and delaying the opening of two COVID-19 vaccination sites after the storm disrupted dosage delivery.

READ MORE: Deadly weather will be hitting the U.S. more often, and America needs to get better at dealing with it, experts said as Texas and other states battled winter storms that blew past the worst-case planning of utilities, governments and millions of shivering residents.

This week's storms — with more still heading east — fit a pattern of worsening extremes under climate change and demonstrate anew that local, state and federal officials have failed to do nearly enough to prepare for greater and more dangerous weather.

At least two dozen people have died this week, including from fire or carbon monoxide poisoning while struggling to find warmth inside their homes. In Oklahoma City, an Arctic blast plunged temperatures in the state capital as low as 14 degrees below 0 (-25 Celsius).

"This is a different kind of storm,'' said Kendra Clements, one of several businesspeople in Oklahoma City who opened their buildings to shelter homeless people, some with frostbite, hypothermia and icicles in their hair. It was also a harbinger of what social service providers and governments say will be a surge of increased needs for society's most vulnerable as climate and natural disasters worsen.

However, the chief medical advisor said that it's "not a mathematical formula" and the new variants could shift the timeline. Aired on 02/18/2021.

Two French fighter jets and a tanker aircraft have been escorted away from Russia’s airspace by two Su-27 interceptor planes, Russian Defense Ministry footage shows.

In a statement, the National Defense Control Center (NDCC) said the Southern Military District deployed the interceptors on Wednesday morning after radar spotted the French trio over the Black Sea.

The targets were identified as a group of French Air Force planes that consisted of a KC-135 aerial refueling tanker and two Mirage 2000 tactical aircraft,’ the NDCC said.

After the French aircraft U-turned away from Russian airspace, the Russian fighters returned to base. Their flight was ‘in strict compliance with the international rules of using the airspace,’ the NDCC added.

Wednesday's interception comes amid increased NATO activity in the Black Sea at the behest of Ukraine, which has recently urged the US-led alliance to increase air operations near Crimea, which seceded from Ukraine and joined Russia after a 2014 referendum.

The Russian Defense Ministry detected an estimated 2,900 combat aircraft and 1,100 spy planes approaching Russian airspace in 2020 alone.
