Freak Snowstorm in the Northeast

| No Comments

Halloween enthusiasts were taken by surprise when a freak snowstorm strolled in the Northeastern region October 29.

"This is absolutely a lot more snow than I expected to see today. I can't believe it's not even Halloween and it's already snowing," Carole Shepherd of Washington Township, N.J., said to NPR.

Over 2 million homes and businesses were without power due to the snow "toppling leafy trees and power lines," NPR said.

Authorities reported to CNN 13 deaths that were attributed to the storm, some to vehicular accidents, trees falling, and carbon monoxide poisoning of alternative heating sources.
