Hundreds of thousands without power in NJ following storm

This is the second nor'easter to hit the Northeast within a week bringing snow and high winds raising fears of another round of electrical outages

Wind gusts of over 40 miles per hour will also be widespread, but not as severe as from the previous storm, in which 9 people died and millions lost power throughout the region. He says that's down from 350,000 at the height of the outages.

There are multiple storm-related delays on the MBTA's commuter rail, light rail and bus lines.

A coastal storm developed late Tuesday night brought a tremendous amount of snow to a good portion of the region during the second nor'easter in just one week.

Officials say travel is unsafe and they advise motorists to be aware of rapidly changing road conditions due to the potential of downed trees and power lines.

Much of the 1,800 flight cancellations involve major airports in the Northeast, such as Newark, John F. Kennedy, LaGuardia, Boston and Philadelphia, according to tracking site FlightAware. New Jersey State Police said on Thursday there were more than 530 crashes on the state's roads during the previous day's storm.

In a follow up Tweet, the airport asked passengers to contact their individual airlines for up-to-date information. The glitch affected outbound flights from its worldwide terminal and one of its two domestic terminals.

The outages turned to outrage for a New Jersey man whose home had been without electricity since Friday.

Thunderstorms embedded within the low-pressure system increased the intensity of snow to as much as 10 centimetres an hour in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and eastern New York. More than 44,000 customers were without power Thursday morning.

In New York City's Penn Station, tired commuters were faced with power outages that forced west bound Amtrack and New Jersey Transit trains to be held during the evening rush hour. "We also can not emphasize enough the need for the public to take these storm warnings seriously, stay tuned to local media for weather updates and avoid any unnecessary travel". Among them was Teressa Davidoski, whose family relied on a generator for power as they wondered about the severity of the new storm. The website said more than 2,100 flights had been delayed and 2,700 canceled, a lot of them in the Northeast, as of 8 p.m. EST (0100 GMT Thursday).

THE second winter storm in less than a week struck the northeastern USA yesterday, with around 2,500 flights cancelled as the region braces for heavy snow.

Coastal flooding is also a concern, with a warning in effect for eastern MA, the National Weather Service said.
