US East Coast Weathers Storm Nemo
Transportation services returning to normal, power outages persist
Winter Storm Nemo dumped a foot or more snow along the eastern seaboard, closing port terminals and shutting down flights. New York received just over 11 inches, areas in connected topped 36 inches, while farther north in Portland, Maine, snow totals reached nearly 32 inches, according to the National Weather Service.
Terminals at the ports of New York and New Jersey closed early Friday due to extreme weather conditions brought on by the storm, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said in a statement.
Airports remained open through the night, but most flights were cancelled, about 6,600 flights in all, USAToday reported. More than half the cancelled flights occurred at New York’s three largest airports (Newark, LaGuardia and JFK) and Boston. Flights schedules returned to normal by Sunday evening.
However, more than 600,000 residents were without power and 300,000 people, mostly in Massachusetts, are still in the dark.
One nuclear power plant was shut down during the storm. Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station in Plymouth lost its offsite power supplies in the middle of the snowstorm. Diesel generators provided some backup power to the facility’s safety systems. Electricity returned to Pilgrim on Sunday morning, but a Louisiana-based Entergy Corp. spokeswoman said the company does not know when the plant will return to service. Tests are underway.
