Many people have died in severe storms in the eastern part of the United States

The media reported that several people died after the storm hit the east coast of the United States. At least four people died in connection with the storm in South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Maine, broadcaster CNN reported Monday evening (local time). The “New York Times” and “USA Today” newspapers also reported deaths from falling trees or flooding.

More than 600,000 people were temporarily without power Tuesday night, according to the website Poweroutage.us. The state of Maine, bordering Canada, was hit hard. In the New York borough of the Bronx, officials warned of “heavy rain” flooding until midday Tuesday. In Moretown, Vermont, residents were asked to evacuate their homes due to the risk of flooding, the New York Times reported.

The National Weather Service called it an “unusual low-lying hurricane.” It has already brought heavy rain and winds up to 96 kilometers per hour along the east coast for the past few days. The storm is expected to move towards Canada on Tuesday.

The storm also disrupted many people’s travel plans ahead of the Christmas holiday. More than 500 flights were canceled on Monday, according to flight data website FlightAware.
