More Power Outages in the Northeast

Posted: Updated:

The nor'easter that moved up the East Coast is being blamed for more than 200,000 additional power outages in the same areas that were hit by Superstorm Sandy.

More than 750,000 homes and businesses, mostly in New Jersey and New York, are in the dark. That's down from a peak of more than 8.5 million following Sandy.

The storm, which brought gusty winds, rain and snow, didn't cause the flooding that had been anticipated. It's now moving into New England.

In New York, some sections of Queens and Staten Island hard hit by Sandy got up to 6 inches of snow yesterday. More than 6 inches of snow fell in parts of Connecticut and Rhode Island. 

Air travel in the New York area still isn't back to normal after the second major storm in little more than a week.

Major airlines have scratched about 600 flights around the U.S. Thursday, according to flight tracking service FlightAware. The majority of those are in the New York area, although airports in Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and elsewhere are affected.

More than 1,600 were cancelled Wednesday when a Nor'easter hit the area with a mix of rain and snow. United and American suspended operations in the region by afternoon, as white-out conditions developed. Other airlines cancelled a handful of flights and encouraged passengers to reschedule.

Superstorm Sandy caused more than 20,000 flight cancellations when it hit last Monday, making it the second-most disruptive storm in the last seven years. (AP)
