A powerful storm system pushed through New York state and the Northeast, bringing almost every bit of weather with it imaginable. High winds, flooding rains, and even heavy snow left thousands in the state without power, as the storm downed trees and powerlines in multiple counties.

CBS reports that a woman in the lower Hudson Valley tragically lost her life during Wednesday's spring Nor'easter. Sources say the resident was less than a mile away from her own home when the tree came down.
