seat, which i not good but it's the only night he could get sunday night 10:00 p.m., front row. >> unbelievable. >> we want to get right now to our top story. it is the nasty weather slamming the east coast overnight as another major storms quickly making its way to the plains and midwest. it could look like winter in plenty of places by the end of thisdy day. n is here with more on that. serious storms moving through. >> crazy we're talking about snow, too, but the new storm systemould dump up to 6 inches of snow in some places today, this as whe northeast dealsh the after math of the last big storm. >> the storms were intense, driving, damaging wninds, uprooting trees, hail, the size of quarters in the northeast, floodingn iohio and thunder outside new york. sometimes catching people off guard. like these beachgoers in

blue here where the windvi ries are posted up to 50 miles per hour as we go through the day today. that could create some isolated flight delayll as this is our next system. this is the snow maker that's going to movehrough the midwest. we're even seeing snow through central and eastern south moving heavy rain through iowa right now, but look at where the winter weather advisories and watches are in effect, even winter storm warnings that ilude the icago area, so this is going to be the area where we do see that heavier snow begin to velop especially as we go into this afternoon, overnight chicago will likely see that snow, same goes for southern michigan and it eventually moves into new york, especially off lake ontario and lake erie before it transitns torain. how much snow could we see, there is the possibility a widespread 2 to 4 inches, this area across southern wisconsin, northern illinois, and northeastern iowa could end up with choser to 4 to 6 inches, especially on the colder surfaces. peter. >> let's turn to politics, a

a pairos of l angeles universities have now been forced to quarantine themselves after p exposure to the measles. >> nbc medical contributor, dr. natalie azar is hereith that, and flu season as well. >> a lot of people are anxious about this measles. there's been so much focus recently in new york, and obviously this recent outbreak in the west coast as well. the presumptions if you got the shot when you were a kid, you're okay. are you okay? >> here's how you can tell if you're immune or what we call presumptive evidence of immunity, one if you have been sickened with measles, mumps of rue bella. the other thing we talk abo is if you were born before 1957, that was before widespread wecination, and most people, think, were probably infected with either measles, mumps or ha rubella, twould give you lifelong immunity. the other group to consider, if you were born between 1963 or
1967 you may not have received the live virus, which is the efficacious one. if that's the case, it is recommended you get the vaarine. >> what the guidelines because it varies depending on age, right? >> exactly. if you're in the pediatric age group betwes the age of 12 months and 15 months, you're getting your first shot and then you're getting a second shot between the ages of 4 and 6. if you are a college aged student, you are to get two doses of the vaccine, 28 days apart, and if you're an adult who has never been vaccinated, you're advised to get one shot. i should say, too, cdc has only been recommending since 1989 the two shot series.y it's ver important to be able to get your vaccination records. that's probably the best evidence that you can show that you've had immunity, and finally, i would say that if you're unclear and there's certain groups like international travel ergers, he personnel, talk to your health care provider about your status and i rnd going to the cdc
web site. it's very informative. >> measles i making lot of headlines. there's a lot of conversation about flu as well making a comeback, a second wave if you wi this season. the cd putting out its latest numbers. five states with widespread flu, four of them in the northeast, he fifth.s what's happening right now? >> right.as so bally you can think of it this way, it's almost like we have had two different back-to-back flu seasons from october to the middle of february, and seeing the in predomce of h 1 n 1,s hich is lesrengthening than the one we have seen since mid february, happily we think we're near the end. we are seeing cases going less than the national average as per the last cdc counts. i say this a lot, flu season lasts all yearlong, technically, you can develop flu anytime throughout the year, and we often say in the fall that it can last well into spring, and we certainly saw that this year.
