New York, N.Y. (AP) - Areas hardest hit by Superstorm Sandy are dealing with new outages after a nor'easter left a blanket of snow that snapped storm-weakened trees and downed power lines.
In New Jersey, utilities reported 400,000 power outages early Thursday; 20,000 of those were new. In New York City and Westchester, more than 70,000 customers were without power after the storm knocked out an additional 55,000 customers.
There were 60,000 new outages on Long Island and parts of Queens, where more than 300,000 customers were without power.
Pockets of new outages were reported in Connecticut.
About 1,300 flights have been cancelled out of New York City and New Jersey.
People in some areas were urged to evacuate, but most stayed.
The storm is expected to move out late Thursday morning.
