Latest On The Aftermath Of The Nor’Easter In Northern New England
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The Latest on the aftermath of the nor'easter in northern New England (all times local):
A Vermont man is recovering from injuries suffered when his car became disabled on railroad tracks during the nor'easter and was struck by a train.
Police say Len Williams suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the accident Tuesday afternoon in Colchester.
Lt. Douglas Allen said the 27-year-old Williams' car was struck by two engines hooked to one other. They were operated by the New England Central Railroad.
The nor'easter has left at least a foot of fresh snow at a number of ski resorts in northern New England, turning back the clock to conditions more typical of mid-February.
Jessyca Keeler, executive director of Ski NH, said Wednesday that both alpine and Nordic skiing "are going to be awesome."
She said while the resorts had a number of snowmaking days to refresh the slopes after some spring temperatures in late February and early March, "having a massive snowstorm like this is just what the ski areas need to remind people that the ski season isn't over."
It's a big turnaround from a year ago, when the region had little snow and mild weather.
Northern New England is slowly digging out of a nor'easter that left more than 2 feet of snow in some areas, with some homes and businesses still without power and many schools opening on a delayed schedule.
Tuesday's storm was on track to be one of the biggest on record for Burlington, Vermont. The National Weather Service says it got 25.6 inches of snow as of Wednesday morning, with another 2 to 5 inches due by the end of the day. Meteorologist Marlon Verasamy tells the Burlington Free Press (http://bfpne.ws/2nrUh6U) that Jay got the most snow in Vermont, with 34 inches.
New Hampton, New Hampshire, recorded 23 inches of snow and Portland, Maine, got 15 inches.
Maine and New Hampshire had a number of power outages. The number was under 20,000 in New Hampshire on Wednesday, down from a peak of 55,000.
