Seven Die As Winter Storm Nemo Hits US and Canada

Seven people including a young boy have been killed in the United States and Canada as the massive blizzard Winter Storm Nemo dumped up to 3ft of snow on a swathe of the eastern seaboard from New York City to the Great Lakes.

Snow driven by winds gusting at hurricane force arrived last night, clogging roads, closing airports and knocking out power to some 700,000 homes.


Quote:
A deadly blizzard of historic proportions pounded the Northeast, already bringing more than 3 feet of snow to some areas and cutting power to 650,000 homes and businesses.

More than 3 feet had fallen on central Connecticut by Saturday afternoon, and areas of southeastern Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire notched 2 feet or more of snow — as the storm began to wane.

The storm is blamed for at least seven deaths, three in Canada and four in the USA. A 74-year-old man died after being struck by a car in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.; the driver said she lost control in the snowy conditions, police said. A second New Yorker, 23, died when a tractor he was using to plow his driveway went off the edge of the road. A woman in her 80s was struck and killed by a hit-run driver Friday night in Connecticut, and in Boston an 11-year-old boy died when he was overcome by carbon monoxide in a running car while his father dug it out of a snow bank.

Hurricane-force winds and history-making snowfalls combined to spread misery from New Jersey to Maine. Winds gusted to 76 mph at Boston's Logan airport and 84 mph in Cuttyhunk, Mass. The storm piled the most snow on Hamden, Conn. -- 40 inches -- and was the fifth largest in Boston history, with 24.9 inches of snow recorded there.

The 31.9 inches in Portland, Maine, is the most ever recorded there from a single snowstorm; it was the second biggest storm in Harford, Conn. (22.8 inches) and Concord, N.H. (24 inches), and third biggest in Worcester (28.7 inches).

More than 6,300 flights in North America have been canceled through 11 a.m. Saturday, according to flight-tracking service FlightStats.

In the New York City area, John F. Kennedy Airport, LaGuardia Airport and Newark Airport were open as of 7 a.m. Saturday, according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Some commercial flights were expected to resume as early as 9 a.m., but carriers have canceled many flights. Travelers were urged to call ahead and check with their carriers for specific flight information.

Snowstorm does not adequately describe what Nemo is

My back is killing me, I was shoveling 2+ feet of snow from my driveway all afternoon.
And I don't even lift.

Re: Seven Die As Winter Storm Nemo Hits US and Canada

This was great, the only problem is its going to melt, weather is getting nice out monday... I miss winters where snowfall like this was the norm and there was a few feet on the ground all winter.

I have a snowblower but I do lift and took this as a gift from nature as a free full body workout.
