Blizzard 2013: East Coast Attempts to Dig Out Snow, Pick Up the Pieces From Storm Nemo


Now that Nemo has finished relentlessly dumping snow along the East Coast, the cities and towns affected have begun plowing away slush and the tedious clean-up process.

The blizzard, which started Friday and ended Saturday morning, left around 345,000 without power through Sunday, according to CBA News

"We've never seen anything like this," Suffolk County Executive Steven Bellone of Long Island told CBA, which also reported that municipal workers from New York to Boston worked throught Saturday night to make roads passable and improve pedestrian walking conditions. They even found themselves saving motorists, who'd been stranded or stuck in snow for hours.

Boston, which was hit hardest in the storm, got around 36 inches of snow, with New Haven, Conn., getting 34 inches and New York City receiving about 12 inches in most places. 

At least five reported deaths have been brought on by the storm, according to Fox News. A young boy in Boston passed away from carbon monoxide poisoning as he sat in a heated car to stay warm. Several others died from carbon monoxide poisoning as well, and a man in his 70s was reportedly hit by a car in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
