‘Bomb Cyclone’ brings Hurricane Strength Winds to the Midwest

An intense winter storm system will rapidly bring hurricane-force wind gusts, blizzard conditions and a flood threat across the United States today.

Known as a ‘bomb cyclone’, the storm is expected to be one of Colorado’s most dangerous storms ever. The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning along the Front Range and into northeastern Colorado that will last into tomorrow. Because of this, travel will be dangerous, if not impossible across the Front Range.

“Travelers across the Colorado mountains and eastern plains should consider canceling travel plans today, as conditions will deteriorate quickly during the late morning or early afternoon. Be aware that if you go somewhere this morning, you could become stranded or have a very difficult time returning this afternoon.” – The National Weather Service

More than 1,000 flights have been canceled Wednesday with the majority of them at Denver International Airport (DIA). In addition, flood watches have been issues across the Midwest in concern that the ice will clog rivers and streams.

Due to the icy roads, whiteout conditions and strong winds, our Denver office will be closed until it is safe to return. For immediate assistance, please contact our freight experts via cell.
