BOSTON – The third major storm in two weeks is lashed the Northeast with hurricane-strength, the wind, the snow and the large-scale power outage and now millions of people are faced with yet another clean-up.
The storm on Tuesday buried some towns under 2 meters of snow.
The National Weather Service says Derry, New Hampshire, was 25 inches. Burrillville, Rhode Island, and Kezar Falls, Maine, both 20 cm.
Hard winds and blowing snow led meteorologists to categorize the storm as a blizzard in parts of New England, including Boston. Gusts approached 70 mph on Cape Cod.
At a given moment, more than a quarter of a million people were without power in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
The energy companies say that they have more crews on Wednesday to restore power to those still without.
