Thousands Without Power During Winter Storm Quinn

posted by Andrew Magnotta -

With a foot-plus of snow and gusty winds in the Tri-State area, thousands of residents are still without electricity due to the nor'easter that struck the area Friday.  

Over 100,000 residents of northern New Jersey, New York City and Long Island are without power, according to local power companies. 

A nor'easter Friday brought heavy, wet snow and powerful winds through the East Coast, toppling trees and tearing down power lines all the way. 

Multiple trains and flights were cancelled due to the weather. 

Wednesday's Winter Storm Quinn brought much more heavy snow but with less severe wind gusts. 

Snowfall reached record accumulations for the dateā€”the previous record set in the 1880s was 6 inches. 

More flights had been canceled at area airports Wednesday, as airlines anticipated snow to arrive early in the afternoon.
