Storm Leaves 9 Dead 1.5 Million without Power

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.
