BOSTON (AP) — The latest blast of snow to hit New England dumped more than a foot in part of Massachusetts and packed heavy winds that left thousands without power on Cape Cod.
Coastal areas in Maine and south of Boston appeared to get the worst of the storm overnight. In Massachusetts, 15 inches of snow was reported in Sandwich and 10 inches were reported in New Bedford and Plymouth.
In Maine, 17 inches were reported in Hancock, and 16.7 in Eastport, in the easternmost city in the U.S. A winter storm warning remained in effect in northeast Maine through the afternoon.
Wind gusts of more than 50 mph were reported Saturday night on Cape Cod, where utility NStar said about 7,650 customers were without power late Sunday morning.
