Storm Blankets Northeast US with Snow - 2003-12-07

A powerful winter storm has blanketed the northeastern United States for a second day, dropping up to 60 centimeters of snow on parts of New England and setting daily records for snowfall in major cities.

The storm stranded travelers at airports throughout the region and snarled traffic from Virginia to Maine. At least four people have died in weather-related accidents.

Boston - along with Providence, Rhode Island, and Hartford, Connecticut - recorded record snowfall on Saturday, with Hartford getting more than 31 centimers.

Major airports along the East Coast canceled hundreds of flights. High winds have prompted the National Weather Service to issue a coastal flood warning for Massachusetts.
