A major nor'easter slammed the East Coast on Friday from Georgia to ME, bringing heavy snow, damaging winds and severe flooding along the coasts, including the streets of Boston.

The storm knocked out power to 700,000 homes and businesses from MI to North Carolina.

The storm - with about 80 million people in its path, including more than 22 million people under a coastal flood warning - officially "bombed out" late Friday morning when it underwent bombogenesis, signaled by an extreme drop in atmospheric pressure.

Mullen says areas in Ashtabula County in the far northeast corner of the state received 10-12 inches of wet, heavy snow while temperatures hovered around freezing.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued a travel advisory for all areas north of New York City, requesting limited travel due to unsafe driving conditions.

The National Weather Service had coastal flood watches and warnings in place from southern ME through coastal North Carolina, including New York's eastern suburbs, and also warned that a snowstorm heading east from the Ohio Valley could drop significant amounts of snow in northern New York State. Rain, wind, snow... this one will have it all. Its progress will be blocked by other weather patterns, preventing it from slipping quickly away into the Atlantic so the storm will be able to pound against the coast. Waves higher than two-story houses battered the area, making roads impassable and turning parking lots into small ponds.

Winds caused power outages throughout the area with numerous school closings reported east of the city.

On Thursday, The National Weather Service of Boston warned on Twitter, "Take this storm seriously!"

"The heavy rain and snow expected will further saturate the ground and weaken trees, leaving them susceptible to come down in high winds", Mike Hayhurst, vice president of electric operations for Eversource Energy, which owns utilities in New England. Even in Boston winds will likely gust over 60 miles per hour.

Friday: Rain and wind.

Heavy rain could turn into heavy snow Friday, March 2, according to the most recent report from the National Weather Service. The snow will be elevation dependent, meaning the higher up you go, the more snow you will see and the more it will readily accumulate as the air will also be colder.

The storm is affecting the entire eastern seaboard, from New England all the way down to northern Georgia.

Authorities are urging residents of coastal communities to be prepared to evacuate if necessary in advance of Friday morning's high tide.

A Nor'easter is expected to bring heavy downpours and wind from the Carolinas up to Maine. One area of low pressure moving across Pennsylvania has brought the region heavy rainfall going back to Thursday evening/night.

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker said he's called in the National Guard.

A high wind warning is in effect for northern Fairfield, northern New Haven, southern Fairfield, and southern New Haven counties.
