Emergency Declared in Three Northeast States

Ad Feedback

The Northeast could see some sunshine Tuesday. But residents are still feeling the effects of three days of torrential rains and high winds.

At least nine people lost their lives to the storm.

The nor'easter hit parts of New Jersey the hardest. And some cities and towns saw up to seven inches of rain on top of record amounts of melting snow.

Meanwhile, more than 140,000 electrical customers in New York City are still without power.

Utility crews from as far away as Michigan have traveled to the Northeast to help restore power. But officials say some residents won't get electricity until Thursday.

"Part of me understands that this was more than we bargained for," Long Island, N.Y. resident Harriet Young said. "This was a very, very bad storm, but I would like my lights on."

The governors of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island have declared a state of emergency in their respective states.
