At a press conference Thursday, NYCHA General Manager Michael Kelly said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio directed the agency to establish an incident command situation desk to offer real-time access for residents to report outages.

The rare type of storm struck the United States south-east on Wednesday, also dumping snow in parts of SC and eastern Georgia, said the meteorologist Patrick Burke of the federal Weather Prediction Center. In parts of New England, snow fell as fast as 3 inches per hour.

Areas around Boston were forecast to see about one foot (30cm) of snow on Thursday, and the National Weather Service predicted a similar amount and wind gusts of up to 55mph (90km/h) in New York City.

Here on Earth, areas affected by the storm-especially NY and New England-could expect rates of 3 to 5 inches of snow per hour accompanied by 50 to 80 mile-per-hour wind gusts.

Dozens of cities are set to endure record-breaking cold, CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller said.

Fortunately, the bomb cyclone is expected to peak by this afternoon, according to Oravec, and it's moving pretty quickly, so the snow should subside by Friday at the latest. Winds could gust to as high as 40 miles per hour. This can happen when a cold air mass collides with a warm air mass, such as air over warm ocean waters.

The bomb cyclone now blasting the Northeast actually doubled the rate necessary to earn it that classification.

According to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, a "bomb cyclone" is formed when a mid-latitude cyclone rapidly intensifies, causing a steep drop in atmospheric pressure of at least 24 millibars over 24 hours.

What turns a normal winter storm into a bomb cyclone has to do with pressure.
