The U.S northeast feeling the wrath of winter
A massive storm packing hurricane-force winds and blizzard conditions is sweeping through the Northeast, dumping more than two feet of snow on New England and knocking out power to 650 thousand customers.
More than 28 inches of snow had fallen in parts of central Connecticut by early Saturday, and areas of southeastern Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire notched two feet or more.
The National Weather Service says up to three feet is expected in Boston, threatening the city's 2003 record of 27.6 inches.
Throughout the Northeast, hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses lost electricity. Airlines cancelled more than 53 hundred flights through Saturday, and New York City's three major airports and Boston's Logan Airport closed.
The storm is being blamed on at least four deaths in New York and Canada.
