Early snowstorm pounds East coast


EAST COAST, U.S.- A day after a rare October snowstorm hit the East coast this weekend, more than 2.4 million people were left without power. The storm took many people for surprise and stranded folks in their homes and away from their everyday activities. Parts of the northeast were buried under more than two feet of snow killing at least six people. The chilly temperatures and piles of snow are cause for concern and many cities are urging residents to postpone their Halloween plans until later this week.

New York Governor, Andrew Cucoms gives the rest of the country hope saying they’ve got it under control. “Mother nature has thrown us a few curve balls over the last few months, but we’re ,managing it and doing the best we can.” he said.

So far our snowy state in Minnesota hasn’t even seen a sign of a flake, but according to meteorologists at UTVS News, we may have a few flurries on the schedule for this weekend.
