The heavy snow is pulling down power lines in MA and pushing the total number of homes without power to more than 230,000 by Tuesday afternoon.

Miami residents Ashley Pozo, 21, and Ray Milo, 25, who we visiting friends in Boston, were stuck at the airport after their Tuesday flight was canceled. The National Weather Service also reports that there might be a winter storm coming.

The storm could bring minor to moderate flooding to New England coasts, especially at high tide after 9 a.m. ET.

Because of the wind, snow and whiteout conditions, officials advised people to stay indoors.

Developing out of a low-pressure system off the mid-Atlantic coast, it is the third late-winter storm to blast the state in the last two weeks.

High winds and blowing snow led meteorologists to categorize the storm as a blizzard in parts of New England, including Boston. Buttrick said storm surge of 2 to 3 feet is expected. Bangor also could get between 12 and 18 inches, while northern Aroostook County is expected to get between 6 and 12 inches.

According to the National Weather Service, the "Storm of the Century" was one of the most intense mid-latitude cyclones ever observed over the eastern United States, with tremendous snowfall amounts from Alabama through Maine.

Snowfall totals through 11 a.m.

ME also braced for a hard hit. Another 12 to 18 inches is expected, said James Brown, of the National Weather Service.

"That's when the unsafe snow rates will be", he said, around when people are usually driving home from work.

Virginia Riley of Boston posted this video on Instagram of the whipping winds and snow.

"The snow will become heavy at times late this morning and winds will rapidly increase in coastal sections early this afternoon into this evening", the service warned for people living along the midcoast. Meanwhile, the storm has been disrupting road and air travel.

The snow will continue through the night, although wane in intensity.

"We're not out of winter yet, that's for sure", Paul Knight, of Portland, said as snow accumulated on his eyebrows during a stroll.

The precipitation could linger in the western mountains until Thursday, although that won't mean the accumulation totals will be higher, according to Schwibbs.
