"Powerful Storm Leaves 9 Dead, Swaths Of East Coast In The Dark"

"Hundreds of thousands of Americans were without power Saturday and at least nine deaths were said to be related to a Nor'easter that thrashed the East Coast with heavy winds, rain and snow on Friday.

Many of the deaths were due to falling trees, officials said. Police in Andover Township, New Jersey, said that a 41-year-old man was killed when he came into contact with downed power lines on Friday evening.

More than a dozen utility companies reported that hundreds of thousands of their customers were affected by the powerful storm."
