More Than 13,000 Without Power After Winter Storm

New York City didn't get the six-plus inches of snow of which forecasters warned, but a quick-hitting winter storm Monday left the area with some of the most significant accumulation of the season and several thousand power outages.

NYC Office of Emergency Management Assistant Commissioner Jonathan Jenkins told CBS2 that the city was doing its best to clean up the heavy, wet accumulation and get back on schedule.

"We're monitoring the situation as we get through the morning commute, but I think the city was pretty lucky," he said. "The storm could have gone one of two ways, and I think we fared the best we could."

He added that commuters should be careful and just give themselves extra time in the morning.

Local power utilities reported some 13,000 outages due to the weather, mostly in New Jersey. More than 300 flights from area airports were canceled.

New York City public schools were closed Monday, although most of the accumulation was west of the city.

No more significant precipitation was expected Monday.
