Cold Temps Hit Eastern Carolina, Parts Of North East Blanketed By Snow

Residents of New England have awakened to more than a foot of snow in some areas.

They're digging out from a major winter storm that caused power
outages, canceled flights and gave thousands of schoolchildren a
day off.

The National Weather Service reported as much as 20 inches of
snow fell from yesterday's fast-moving storm.

As much as 14 inches fell in northern Massachusetts, near the
New Hampshire line. About half as much fell in the Boston area.
Maine had 20 inches in Gardiner. The weather is blamed for at least
one highway fatality, a woman killed in a three-vehicle pile-up in
Topsham, Maine.

Utility companies reported up to 45,000 customers lost power
across Massachusetts. Power outages peaked at 36,000 customers in
Connecticut.

Forecasters predict another round of scattered snow showers
across New England today, with up to 6 more inches possible.
