A powerful storm will pound the Northeast with drenching rain, howling winds and surging waves for a second day Saturday.
Heavy snow, rain and potentially “dangerous” winds developed overnight across the Northeast and northern Mid-Atlantic regions, the National Weather Service (NWS) reported Friday.
The nor’easter has already killed at least four people, canceled 3,000 flights, snarled ground traffic and knocked out power to 700,000 customers — with more than 400,000 of them in Massachusetts.
Massachusetts is taking the brunt of the storm. It hit Friday and is not expected to ease up until midday Saturday. High wind watches and warnings are up all along the entire I-95 corridor from Boston to Washington D.C.
According to meteorologists, it’s not unusual to get at least one storm that is classified as a “bomb cyclone” a year. The problem with this storm, though, is that it is going to be slow and lumbering with heavy rain and strong winds. Incredible amounts of snow will continue to hit the Northeast throughout the weekend.
