The satellite image above shows the storm as it was developing and advancing on the eastern seaboard. Tornadoes, wind gusts over 100 mph, coastal flooding, blizzard conditions and record snows were generated by this one storm.

The storm hit the Baltimore area on March 13 and generated a heavy, wet snow that broke records across the region.

Blizzard conditions caused blowing and drifting snow. Powerlines were snapped causing widespread outages.

This area has experienced bigger snowfalls in the metro area but the size and scope of this storm made it one for the record books.
