Nor'easter blasts through, causes 3 million without power

A freak October snowstorm knocked out power of nearly 3 million homes and businesses across the northeast this weekend and the clean-up is just beginning. 

From Maryland to Maine, the blizzard caused countless trees to fall and rip down power lines. Officials said it could take several days to restore electricity. Some crews from Michigan have even headed out east to help.

The heaviest snow, which fell on Saturday, caused a headache for travelers. A Jet Blue flight from Fort Lauderdale to Newark was diverted to Connecticut.

Passengers were stuck on the tarmac with no food, water or working bathrooms for seven hours.
