Nor’easter Leaves Thousands Without Power Across New England : NPR

Nor’easter brought heavy rain and snow to parts of New England, left more than a foot of snow in some places and knocked out power for more than 200,000 customers in the region.

Parts of Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire all recorded more than a foot of snow in some places, according to the National Weather Service. At Cape Cod, a wind gust of more than 73 mph was recorded.

“Snow showers will linger over Northern New England through Tuesday,” the National Weather Service Weather Prediction Center said Sunday afternoon. “The snow will aid in producing hazardous driving conditions over the area.”

The center forecasted the storm to be the “first widespread significant snow event of the season.”

As many as 43,000 customers in Massachusetts were without power on Saturday evening, according to the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency. By Sunday evening, all but a few hundred had power restored.
