More than a foot of snow sweeps over the Midwest and northeastern US, causing at least 2,300 flight cancellations and giving some students an extra day off school following Christmas break. On Thursday night, the storm was expected to affect 20 states with more than 120 million people in the Midwest and the northeast, a meteorologist said.
