Colossal, debilitating and major are words being used to describe Winter Storm Jonas.  Forecasters up and down the Eastern Seaboard are anticipating impressive snow amounts from Virginia to New York and coastal flooding throughout New Jersey and parts of New York City and Long Island.

Models are showing Philadelphia could see anywhere from 12 to 18 inches of snow, which has PennDOT, Del DOT and NJDOT working overtime to pack a punch back at Old Man Winter and Mother Nature.

PennDOT is reporting they have 130,000 tons of salt stockpiled.  Gene Blaum of PennDOT says more than 500 people will be working around the clock throughout the five-county Philadelphia region to ensure roads remain passable.

Meanwhile in the First State, DelDOT has more than 400 pieces of equipment ready to combat Jonas and crews in the Garden State say NJDOT will have nearly 450 spreaders and plows on hand plus 2,300 contractors standing by.
