Millions of people in the eastern United States dug out Sunday from a historic blizzard that brought New York and Washington to a standstill, but travel woes look set to persist into another week.

The storm — dubbed “Snowzilla” — killed at least 18 people after it walloped several states from Friday into early Sunday, affecting an estimated 85 million residents who were told to stay in doors and off the roads for their own safety. Forecasters said 26.8 inches (68 centimeters) of snow fell in New York’s Central Park, the second-highest accumulation in the city since records began in 1869, and more than 22 inches paralyzed the capital Washington.

Near-record-breaking snowfall was recorded in other cities up and down the East Coast, with Philadelphia and Baltimore also on the receiving end of some of the worst that Mother Nature could fling at them. (AP)

A snowstorm pounded the East Coast early Tuesday, bringing high winds and heavy snow to coastal areas of New Jersey northward through Maine.

Some areas of Massachusetts received more than a foot of snow by early Tuesday, where Plymouth received almost 16 inches, Shrewsbury almost 15, and Sandwich had 13 inches of snow.

More than 7,700 flights in and out of the Northeast were canceled on Monday and Tuesday.

Lake-effect snow pummelled areas around Buffalo for a second straight day, leaving residents stuck in their homes as officials tried to clear massive snow mounds with another storm looming.

Even hardened Buffalo residents were caught off-guard as more than 5 feet fell in parts of the city by Wednesday morning. Some areas were expected to get 6 feet by the storm’s end Wednesday afternoon. A second storm was due Wednesday night.

The storm was blamed for five deaths in New York including three from heart attacks. (AP)

I wonder if Niagara Falls will be frozen again this year, as it did twice early of this year, first in January and again in March.
