Nor'easter leaves 1 dead after pummeling Northeast with heavy snow
By
WATCH: Storm is prompting flight delays and school cancellations across the Northeast.

At least one person died on Wednesday as a powerful nor’easter barreled through the Northeast, just days after a storm killed nine in the same region.

The victim, an 88-year-old woman from Suffern, New York, died after being hit by a falling tree in her driveway, according to police in Suffern, which is about 30 miles northwest of Manhattan.

At least 60 million Americans were in the storm's path, prompting plane, train and school cancellations across the Northeast.

Over 3,000 flights were canceled on Wednesday and more than 850,000 customers, including 320,000 in New Jersey and over 130,000 in New York, were left without power as of early Thursday as the brutal storm unleashed heavy snow, rain and gusty winds across on the area.

“I encourage New Yorkers to stay at home or seek shelter if experiencing a loss of power," New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said late Wednesday, as he announced plans to double the number of National Guard troops deployed in the region.

Back-to-back storms

This new storm arrived just days after Friday's powerful nor'easter ripped through the Northeast with strong winds and heavy rain. At least nine people died from Friday's storm.

In New Rochelle, New York, resident Nicole Davis said she hasn't had power since last Friday.

Davis, her husband and 2-year-old son toughed it out in the cold house until Sunday with blankets, layers, flashlights and lanterns.

But by then the temperature was "unbearable" and they left to stay with a friend, she told ABC News today.

Now, Davis said she's very concerned the new storm will delay attempts to restore the electricity.

Another New Rochelle resident, Com Crocker, was also without power when Friday's storm left downed power lines in his yard and a massive tree on the front of his car.

"It's been a rough several days for my family and me," Crocker told ABC News Tuesday.

While his family stays at a hotel, a generator is keeping a pump going in his basement to remove floodwater.

Crocker said he is also "pretty concerned" about the new storm but is grateful the massive tree missed his house.

"We were lucky," he said.
