A northeaster threatened to unravel progress made since superstorm Sandy ravaged the New York area, delivering a second angry serving of howling wind and high water on Wednesday in places where misery and frustration had yet to recede.
In New Jersey, Gov. Chris Christie warned that the northeaster could leave many people in the dark again, only a few days after their power had been restored. "I can see us actually moving backwards," he said at a news conference on Long Beach Island.
The storm, which covered cars and trees in the region in a coat of white, brought down power lines faster than repair crews could keep up.
About 6:40 pm, the Long Island Rail Road temporarily suspended departures from Pennsylvania Station in Manhattan and Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn after a series of storm-related problems on several of its lines. But later, limited service was restored.
The storm also snarled traffic in some areas, particularly along the Taconic State Parkway in Putnam and Westchester Counties, where the State Police said there had been multiple accidents.
Mayor Michael R Bloomberg said low-lying areas had survived high tide on Wednesday afternoon without being inundated again.
