powerful nor'easter hammered the East Coast from Delaware to Maine with 60 mile-per-hour winds and wet snow, downing power lines and complicating the recovery in communities that were devastated by the deadly superstorm that hit the region just nine days earlier. Power had been restored to all but 607,000 customers in New York and New Jersey by Wednesday, but by early Thursday another 60,000 had lost electricity. Staten Island, a New York City borough hit hard by Hurricane Sandy, was expected to get seven inches of snow by early Thursday. "It's Mother Nature's one-two punch," said Mayor Cory Booker of Newark.
