"Bomb cyclone" sets record as strongest October storm ever in Boston area

October 17, 2019 / 4:48 PM / CBS/AP

A powerful autumn storm plunged hundreds of thousands of people into the dark, toppled trees, canceled schools and delayed trains Thursday in the Northeast. The nor'easter brought high winds and rain to the region on Wednesday and Thursday. In Massachusetts, wind gusts reached as high as 90 mph on Cape Cod, and about 200,000 residents lost power early Thursday.

The storm left nearly 200,000 people without power in Maine, too. The Maine Emergency Management Agency partially activated the state's emergency operations center. Heavy rain combined with 60 mph wind gusts knocked down trees and power lines, and CBS affiliate WGME-TV reports that the Coast Guard received multiple reports of adrift or sunken boats. The agency urged residents to look for hazards on Thursday because many roads were unsafe.

A high wind warning and flood warning remain in effect for parts of New England.

It'd be nice to hear from Kaz wouldn't it? His profile shows it's been over 2 years since last he visited, and it's almost 2 years longer since he last posted. Still, in any case it IS more than nice you thought of him.

It'd be great it if he started posting again - I wouldn't make any bets on that, but hey, you never know??
