Winter storm Kenan killed three people in New York City as it ravaged the East Coast, knocked out electricity to more than 50.000 people and canceled 1.300 flights.

While the storm was making landfall in the Northeast Sunday, a blanket of snow and blizzard conditions pushed the area further under pressure.

New York City, in part of the region, saw the heaviest Snowfall in Queens, where some quarters saw up to 12 inches.

Eastern Massachusetts received the most snow this weekend with some areas reporting over 30 inches, MassLive reported.

More than 3.500 flights in the United States were cancelled Saturday, including nearly all flights in or out of Boston and an additional 1.000 flights throughout the New York City metropolitan area.

People from New York City to Maine were waking up to 5 inches (15 centimeters) of snow on Saturday as a powerful blizzard caused foggy conditions and severe winds.

Like most big winter storms in New England, it drew comparisons to the infamous Blizzard of 78, which brought the region to a standstill for days on end.
