Nor'easter Leaves Thousands Without Power

More rain, snow expected in parts of Northeast today.

— -- About 25,000 customers in the Northeast remain without power today after a powerful nor'easter hit the East Coast.

The storm dumped more than 5 inches of rain in Essex County, Massachusetts. Wind gusts battered houses and ripped down trees in Scituate, Massachusetts, where 62 mph wind gusts were reported.

On the coast of New Jersey, washed out streets stranded cars and massive waves filled homes with water.

In Killington, Vermont, 14 inches of snow fell Tuesday. More snowfall is forecast from central New York to Vermont and parts of Maine, where an additional 6 inches are possible.

Temperatures later today are forecast to fall to freezing or slightly below for many areas in the Northeast.

Out west, flood and wind advisories cover almost the entire coast from Seattle to Los Angeles.

The setup that fuels the storm, called an "Atmospheric River" or "Pineapple Express," is forecast to hit Seattle and northern California today, San Francisco tonight and Thursday, and Los Angeles on Friday.

The heaviest rain is forecast to fall through Friday from Seattle to Monterey, California, where some coastal mountain areas could receive up to a foot of rain.

The storm is potentially the strongest one for the West Coast since 2009.
