| No Comments

A deadly winter storm left many in the Northeast without power and caused the death of at least nine people, news sources reported.

Areas of the Northeast are currently buried in over three inches of snow after record-setting blizzard "Nemo" hit Friday. The storm caused power-outages to 650,000 homes and businesses at one point and many car-related accidents, USA Today reported.

The storm was said to be the cause of at least nine deaths in the East Coast and areas in Canada, according to Fox 31 Denver.

One of the nine deaths was an 11-year-old boy in Boston who was poisoned by carbon monoxide while his father shoveled out their car, USA Today reported.
