Without Power in Mass. as Nor'easter Blizzard Whips State

Most of the coast, including Portland, and sections of central ME could get 18 to 24 inches of snow by the time the storm exits the state's far northeastern corner early Thursday morning.

The storm was expected to last through most of Tuesday, disrupting road and air travel. The third nor'easter in less than two weeks took aim at Long Island and coastal CT, with Suffolk and Fairfield counties expected to bear the brunt of the storm.

"We're not out of winter yet, that's for sure", Paul Knight, of Portland, said as snow accumulated on his eyebrows during a stroll.

The flight-tracking site FlightAware reported more than 1,500 canceled flights on Tuesday.

Amtrak temporarily suspended its Northeast Corridor Service between Boston and NY until at least 11 a.m. Tuesday. Rather than risk getting stranded in the city, they plan to stay another night in the airport, sleeping on chairs, watching Netflix and munching on supplies they picked up from a CVS drug store.

Gov. Charlie Baker of MA said officials were not calling out the National Guard as it had in the earlier storms because the tides would be low and any flooding was likely to be minor.

The Cape was also expected to be blasted with high winds, with gusts up to 65 miles per hour, said Lenore Correia, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Taunton, Mass.

This storm's heavy snow could down trees weakened by the last two storms and bring a fresh wave of power outages, officials warned.

The weather service defines a blizzard as three or more hours of sustained wind or frequent gusts to 35 mph or greater; and falling or blowing snow that reduces visibility frequently to less than one-quarter of a mile. "I just hope everyone is safe and in a warm place". In some areas, snow could reach 2 feet. Bangor also could get between 12 and 18 inches, while northern Aroostook County is expected to get between 6 and 12 inches.

By the time this storm is over on Wednesday, as much as 18 inches of snow will have fallen in Boston.

Satellite images captured by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) weather satellite GOES-16, shows what exactly is going on with the storm from high above.

Travel conditions are expected to be hard Tuesday morning, as almost 44 million people are under winter weather advisory or warning. The snowfall total for Ellijay was 17 inches.

Schools in Boston and Providence, Rhode Island, were shut on Tuesday, Maine's state legislature canceled its session, Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy closed all government offices and the passenger rail line Amtrak halted service between Boston and NY.

Slick roads were blamed for at least one death in North Carolina, which got snow Monday.
