    Groton Cleans Up After Nor'easter

    (Published Tuesday, March 13, 2018)

    The third nor'easter to hit Connecticut in 11 days moved through Tuesday, dropping nearly two feet of snow in parts of the state. With cleanup efforts underway, dozens of school districts have delays for Wednesday morning.

    While Tuesday's storm didn't bring the damage and power outages the heavy wet snow of the storm preceding it did, some parts of the state saw nearly two feet of snow. The storm caused hundreds of school and business closures Tuesday nd travel issues across the northeast region.

    SNOW TOTALS

    Towns in eastern Connecticut saw the most snow, with totals creeping above 20 inches in some areas. Hover over the spots on the map below for specifics.


    POWER OUTAGES:

    Eversource is reporting 1,700 outages as of 6:30 a.m., mostly in eastern Connecticut. This storm was less impactful than the last, where tens of thousands lost power and some remained in the dark for days as power crews struggled to fix hundreds of broken utility poles and restring miles of wire.

    TRANSPORTATION:

    Amtrak service between Boston and New York City was temporarily suspended for part of the day. The rail line will restore service Wednesday.

    Bradley Airport was open Tuesday, but around 75 percent of flights were canceled. Airport officials expected to see significant cancellations Wednesday morning as well. Check the Bradley Airport website for flight information. Anyone traveling is urged to call the airline before heading to the airport to see if the flight is canceled. Travelers should arrive early and expect the airport to be busier than usual due to storm-related rebookings.
