In the snow-bound communities from New York to Boston Municipal workers toiled through Saturday night rescuing motorists stuck for hours in heavy snow. The blizzard with hurricane-force winds dumped up to 40 inches of snow killing at least nine people.

Across a nine-state region, the snow brought down trees and power lines. By early Sunday, utility companies reported that around 350,000 customers were without power.

According to Flightaware, a flight tracking service, airlines cancelled around 5,800 flights on Friday and Saturday. Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Connecticut, and the Long Island MacArthur Airport closed on Saturday reopened on Sunday morning.

On the following day at dawn, women found it difficult to clear their yard of the large boulders of ice using the indigenous ekel brooms.

Though the hailstorm lasted only for about 20 minutes, it covered the entire villages under a snowy blanket causing financial loss to most of the villagers by destroying their houses, live stock and crops.
