Nor'easter packing heavy snow, wind threatens new outages
It's the second big Nor'easter to hit in less than a week and more than 100,000 homes and businesses still have no electricity. The Long Island Rail Road also is experiencing delays and Amtrak has suspended its service between Boston and NY until 10 a.m.
