A potentially historic winter storm was closing in on New England on Friday with tens of millions of people in its sights. The storm has canceled thousands of flights and could bring 2 feet of snow to cities like Boston.

Snow could lock some residents indoors over the weekend.

In addition, it will produce high winds and stir up trouble at sea, pushing ocean waves onto land and flooding New England coastlines.
