Hundreds of flights canceled in Northeast Sunday

Although many of the region’s hubs were expected to resume operations on Sunday, flight cancellations continued to pile up. About 1,000 flights in and out of the region were canceled Sunday, according to flight tracking website FlightAware.

In all, the storm was blamed for more than 4,500 canceled flights over the weekend.

Freezing temperatures move in after heavy snow

Millions in the Northeast were waking up to temperatures in single digits and teens, increasing the need to restore power in areas where it was knocked out by Saturday’s strong winds.

Outcomes decrease as Northeast digs out

Fewer than 60,000 homes and businesses were without power in Massachusetts Sunday morning, and the rest of the region had no more than a few thousand outages combined, according to PowerOutage.us.

At one point Saturday night, the state had more than 120,000 customers without power. Most of the interruptions were on Cape Cod, where winds were as high as 83 mph.

Each of these numbers represents a single customer, meaning hundreds of thousands were without electricity in cold temperatures.

Remember that generators can be fatal if used incorrectly. Follow the safety rules when using one and never use a generator indoors or next to an enclosed space.
