More than 148,000 utility customers in NY were without power early on Wednesday.

Local news showed footage of trees resting on top of crushed cars and houses, and vehicles submerged in water.

Downed trees and utility poles impacted MA as well, though the severity did not reach the level reported in other northeast regions.
