At least nine people are dead and 1.5 million are still without power after a storm ravaged communities along the New England coast over the weekend. Reuters reports that residents there could face two more days of flooding after the storm, known as a nor'easter, carried hurricane-force winds in excess of 90 miles per hour that snapped trees, downed wires and sent seawater churning into streets. The governors of Massachusetts and New York declared a state of emergency on Saturday afternoon following similar announcements by the governors of Virginia and Maryland on Friday. Of the nine people who died, seven were struck by falling trees and two were killed in the storm, including a man who came in contact with power lines. Additionally, the storm caused hundreds of flights into and out of New York and Boston to be canceled.
