Snowstorm weakens after leaving at least 7 dead


A major winter storm that dumped more than 30 inches of snow in parts of the Northeast US weakened Wednesday as it moved east over the Atlantic after leaving at least seven people dead, APA reports quoting CNN.

 

Normalcy was trickling back in some areas of the Northeast as some train service and flights resumed. But more than 1,000 US flights still were canceled Wednesday, adding to the 7,900-plus flights canceled earlier this week, according to Flightaware.com.

And some school systems, including in Boston, also canceled classes Wednesday. Boston's mayor said about 6 to 8 inches of snow had fallen there by Tuesday afternoon.

A vehicle makes its way through a normally busy intersection in Yonkers, New York, on March 14.

 

The storm led to six deaths in the United States and one in Canada this week, authorities said -- a toll that started Monday as snow fell in Wisconsin.
