NEW YORK (AP) — Areas hardest hit by Superstorm Sandy are dealing with new outages after a nor’easter left a blanket of snow that snapped storm-weakened trees and downed power lines.

There’s more than 200,000 new outages in the Sandy-battered parts of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. In New York City, power officials say the new outages are getting dealt with quickly. About half the current outages in New Jersey are from the latest storm.

The nor’easter, as promised, brought gusting winds, rain and snow, but not the flooding that was anticipated.
