Transcript for Christmas Storms Move in as Millions Head Out
And good evening on this saturday night. We're going to start with a huge number, 93 million, that's how many million americans are on the move this holiday weekend. Nearly a third of the u.S. Population getting on planes or behind the wheel. Dealing with weather problems like this truck blown right off the road and this gas station, where the roof over the pumps was knocked down. But the big worry tonight is what happens after christmas? When everyone tries to get back home. There are two new, big storms bearing down. Ginger zee is all over the story. Reporter: Relentless winds. Gusting up to 60 miles per hour around the nation's capital today, put holiday travel on hold at dulles airport. And they actually had to have planes change runways, moving runway landings around because of concerns about crosswinds. A lot of passengers tell us they were dealing with some turbulence coming in. ter: FOR THE MILLIONS Hitting the road, it was far from perfect. Rochester, new york, whiteouts made travel nearly impossible. And for those who thought trains were the safe bet, a major commuter train outside of seattle is still shut down, thanks to almost a dozen landslides. And this is still all part of that disastrous winter storm that tore across the nation this week killing at least seven people. That brute of a storm is gone by tomorrow. But don't set down your weather remote. Up from 3 feet of snow from a new storm. All of that snow, then a night of heavy rain, and a roof collapsed into this store. The snow so heavy it sent a tree through this trailer, killing a man. And that beast is now coming east. The beast is coming east. In fact, we've got two beasts coming east. Tell us what we're in store for. That's right. Places like washington, d.C., which only has snow 1 in 12 chance on christmas day. I have to show this storm. The last time they had snow on christmas is 2002. It's been ten years, they deserve a little. It's going to come up monday into tuesday. This is storm one. I think this is going to affect travel. From new england and as this moves off-shore that would with storm one and problem one. But this is the bigger one, it drops out of the rockies on monday. Oklahoma could see see snow on christmas. Places like arkansas could have a white christmas. And look at the thunderstorms, much like last week, severe weather is possible. Then this thing moves like a check mark, right up to the mid-atlantic, to wednesday and thursday, when a lot of folks are heading home. It looks like we could be seeing some travel troubles.
