16 hours of traffic congestion due to snowfall in the United States

In the Netherlands it is not so serious, but it is still wise to place a bag of some water bottles and nuts in the back of the car. Yesterday, hundreds (thousands of other sources say) of US drivers were surprised by heavy snowfall, resulting in heavy traffic congestion. Many had to spend the night in their car.

Interstate 95 (or just I-95) runs from top to bottom (or vice versa) on the east coast of the United States. It travels from the state of Maine to Florida. In Virginia, half way through, it suddenly snowed over almost a foot yesterday. Due to the slippery road, the lorry overturned and caused a series of accidents. According to ABC News Some were stuck in traffic for 16 hours. On Twitter, some say they have been stuck in traffic for too long. No one is said to have been injured in accidents or hypothermia and malnutrition.
