(Newser) – Mother Nature continues to kick the Northeast around: New Jersey has been hit with significant snowfall from a Nor'easter, with Accuweather reporting 13 inches in one town. The storm dumped six inches on parts of New York City as well, while southern Connecticut saw 10 inches, the New York Post reports. Some in New Jersey feared further power outages as others remain in the dark after Sandy, the Star-Ledger reports. Tuesday afternoon, reports suggested the state had escaped snowfall—but the ensuing hours proved that wrong.

In New York City, some 68,100 people remained without power and 11,000 lost electricity in the latest storm. Thousands of flights are canceled, and another Sandy-related death has been reported, bringing the city's toll to 41. Long Island, meanwhile, saw some 100,000 lose power thanks to the Nor'easter. "That’s three straight years now we’ve seen snow in the fall, October (2010), October (2011), and now again this November. That’s pretty unusual," notes a New Jersey climatologist. Daily snowfall records were broken in Newark, with 5.7 inches, and New York City, with 4.3 inches, Accuweather notes. Now the storm is moving to New England, where it has downed trees in Massachusetts. (Read more New York City stories.)
