A mega snow snow storm continues to impact the Northeast. As predicted, snow totals have been in excess of three feet in a few locations. The region was brought to a stand still as transportation came to a halt yesterday. At the height of the storm more than a half million customers lost power. Snow will continue through today but the heaviest snow bands are moving off the coast and skies are clearing in the southern half of region. Nothing tells the story better than the pictures that have been streaming into our studios this morning. Check out some of the highlights below:
