Update US: The Storm Moves In, The Lights Go Out

Updated 7:27 AM EST, Sat February 9, 2013

People Walking As The Storm Hits.


1 dead, 650,000 without power as the snowstorm recedes:

Boston (CNN) -- A massive blizzard that dumped more than two feet of snow in parts of the Northeast is heading out to sea, averting the worst fears of New Englanders. The snowstorm has left one man dead in its wake and taken electricity from over 650,000 customers in the Northeast.

And it dumped about two feet of snow across New England and Long Island, the National Weather Service said in a bulletin early Saturday.

Connecticut saw the most accumulation with over 20 inches in many places, the NWS said, but the nor'easter has beaten up Massachusetts with winds howling at 60 to 75 mph. It knocked out power to over 400,000 addresses there, accounting for nearly two thirds of all power outages, according to the state's power companies.

Electricity dropped out at a nuclear power plant in Plymouth, Massachusetts, said fire spokesman Ed Bradley, but backup generators sprang into action. It's not an emergency, he said. Plymouth is 90% in the dark.

Rhode Island may have seen the worst outages relative to its size, with over 180,000 customers losing power. At one million residents, it has only one sixth of Massachusetts' population, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Snow covers the area from eastern Pennsylvania to Maine, the NWS said. It has turned most everything in sight white. Overnight lows hovered in most of the Northeast under 20 degrees and should not get above freezing Saturday. Governors of at least six states have declared states of emergency. At its height, the storm heaped snow on Connecticut at a frenzied rate of four to five inches an hour.

But the nor'easter is showing some mercy. Instead of carrying its destructive power further inland, the way superstorm Sandy did in early November, the nor'easter has begun taking its fury off shore, CNN Meteorologist Chad Myers said. But the system continues to sling snow back toward land, as it heads out over the Atlantic.
By mid morning Saturday, the precipitation will have slowed to a flurry, Myers said. The worst of the snow should cease before sunup, but winds will continue to push up dangerous drifts.

The nation's attention will likely then shift to the Plains and Mountain States, where blizzards and heavy snows are expected to last into Monday over a region larger than the Northeast but far less populous.

Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island, ahead of the storm ordered motorists to stay off the streets under threat of imprisonment and fines -- up to a year in jail and $500 in Rhode Island.

Connecticut officially closed all roads in the state Saturday morning with the exception of emergency vehicles capable of snow travel, said governor's office spokesman Andrew Doba.

Emergency and snow clearing vehicles are the only exceptions. Massachusetts' travel ban will last until at least 4 p.m. Saturday and not officially be over until the state's governor lifts it, according to emergency management spokesman Peter Judge.

Still, the only known loss of life from the storm so far occurred in a vehicle accident in New York. An 18-year-old woman lost control of her car due to the falling snow and struck a 74-year-old man walking near the side of the road, police in Poughkeepsie said. He died in hospital from his injuries.

Hundreds of cars were stranded on the Long Island Expressway, after motorists got stuck driving in the snow. They outnumbered the tow trucks and crews deployed in the area for the storm, according to the Suffolk County police.

Rescuers have recovered many, taking them to warm places, but still have their work cut out, police said. Rail transportation has come to a virtual halt, with commuter trains running on a patchwork schedule. Nearly 5,000 flights have been canceled to and from the Northeast Friday and Saturday.

Cities in the most populous section of the country looked like ghost towns, as streets usually bustling with traffic emptied out. Residents followed the pleas by governors and mayors to "basically, stay at home," as Boston Mayor Thomas Menino had advised.

Default Re: US: The Storm Moves In, The Lights Go Out

Northeast Digs Out After Deadly Blizzard; Midwest to Get Next Storm.

Updated 8:02 AM EST, Sun February 10, 2013



The mammoth blizzard that buried the Northeast under feet of snow has drifted away, leaving millions on a path of hefty recovery. At least nine deaths in three states and Canada are blamed on the snowstorm, which was spawned by two converging weather systems.

Residents from Pennsylvania to Maine are trying to dig out from as much as 3 feet of snowfall. "There's just really no place to put the snow," Bostonian Allison Rice said, trying to shovel away what she could.

Overnight, about 400,000 power customers were still in the dark, with many enduring frigid conditions. But that number is an improvement from the 635,000 without electricity Saturday afternoon.

A day after officials pleaded for residents to stay home, travel was slowly coming back to life Sunday.

As workers struggle to get airports, trains and highways online again, countless travelers were trying to get their plans back on track.

The storm forced the cancellation of more than 5,000 flights. Three of New York's busiest airports resumed limited service Saturday, and flights are expected to resume Sunday at Boston's Logan International Airport and Connecticut's Bradley International Airport.

At least nine people were killed in accidents related to the storm, including five in Connecticut, two in Canada, one in New York and one in Massachusetts -- a 14-year-old Boston boy who was helping his father shovel snow.

The boy hopped in the snowed-in family car to warm up, but the engine was running and the exhaust pipe was blocked by snow, causing carbon monoxide to accumulate in the car. Firefighters were unable to resuscitate the boy.

Boston police were investigating another possible death from carbon monoxide when a man in his early 20s was found dead a vehicle.

The department warned about the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning from trying to stay warm in a car with exhaust pipes blocked by snow.

In Poughkeepsie, New York, an 18-year-old woman lost control of her car in the falling snow and struck a 74-year-old man walking near the side of the road, police said. He later died from his injuries.

Other accidents occurred in Connecticut and southern Ontario. The situation could have turned out worse for some drivers in Long Island, who had to be rescued from cars that were stuck and virtually frozen in place.

Connecticut saw the most accumulation, with 40 inches in Hamden. At its height, the storm heaped snow on the state at a frenzied rate of 4 to 5 inches an hour.

"Due to the amount of snow that came down, it seems not even the plows came out," photographer Mia Orsatti told CNN's iReport from Hamden. "The street was a white, wide, soft blanket of snow."

Snowfall in Manhattan reached just under a foot, but heavier accumulations piled up in Long Island, where 27 inches fell in Stony Brook. "This state had consequences, but nothing like our neighboring states," New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Saturday. He announced plans to send utility workers and snow plows to New England to help with recovery.

While the blizzard that pummeled Northeastern states has wandered out over the Atlantic Ocean, trouble now brews for northern Midwest states.
A major winter storm will bring heavy snow and strong winds from northeast Colorado to central Minnesota from Sunday into Monday, the National Weather Service said. Eastern South Dakota could see more than a foot of snow and 50 mph winds, "creating whiteout conditions," the weather agency said.
