SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The euro wobbled Monday after Greece's anti-austerity opposition party won a big victory in national elections, renewing fears the European common currency bloc could unravel. Stock markets in Europe and Asia, however, were relatively stable while futures pointed to modest falls on Wall Street.
The stage was set for a possibly historic "nor'easter" that would affect an area from central New Jersey to the Canadian border from Monday to Wednesday, the National Weather Service said. Officials in Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington urged residents to stay home as they prepared for a storm that could dump up to three feet (about a metre) of snow in some areas. "We are facing most likely one of the largest snow storms in the history of this city," New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio told a news conference. The US Weather Channel referred to the cold blast as a "possibly historic" winter storm, as airlines canceled more than 1,800 flights early Monday as the weather system neared, according to flightaware.com.
