(A) it looked like parts of New York and New Jersey were going to run: what does going to run? Illogical.
(B) it looked as if parts of New York and New Jersey would have run It means they will not, but they would have in the past. But as per meaning we should talk about future.

(D) appearances were that parts of New York and New Jersey would run : Awkward
(E) it was the appearance that parts of New York and New Jersey would be running: It was the appearance is awkward.
