A powerful nor’easter morphed into a “bomb cyclone” today as it has hammered the East Coast with a ferocious mix of howling winds, drenching rain, some snow and surging waves.
The storm’s effects are being felt as far south as Georgia and as far north as Maine. In Rhode Island, the winds were so severe that officials shut down the Newport Bridge. In New York City, most flights were grounded for a time this afternoon. And in the Washington suburbs, downed trees were strewn across the streets.
At least two people have died, according to authorities: a 77-year-old woman in Kingsville, Maryland, and an 11-year-old boy in Putnam County, Virginia. Both were killed by falling trees. Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker said he’s called in the National Guard and urged vigilance. “Do not ride out the storm if you are told to evacuate,” Baker said.
