More than 650,000 were left in the dark with no power and no heat since Friday. Seven deaths were reported due to this overnight storm that hit New York to Boston. Residents and travelers are being warned to stay indoors and off the streets if at all possible. The Associated Press reported on Saturday that New Englanders are still digging themselves out of 3 feet of snow while parts of Massachusetts were warned to stay off the streets in their cars. However, from the photo here you’ll see that some have taken the streets by snow ski during the day.
Danger after the storm
Hundreds of cars are stranded on the Long Island expressway. People are placing themselves and their families at risk just by shoveling snow, as in the death of an 11-year-old boy who was helping his father clear the driveway. The boy got cold and the father started the car and had the boy sit in the car while he continued to shovel the snow. The exhaust was covered with snow and the car was filled with carbon monoxide, the boy died at the hospital. People with heart conditions are also advised to be cautious while shoveling snow.
