Amtrak to resume service a day after blizzard hits parts of New England 



BOSTON (AP) — Amtrak said it will restore most service between Boston and New York City on Wednesday as the Northeast digs out from the third powerful nor'easter in two weeks.

The railroad suspended all service between the two cities on Tuesday because of the storm.

It brought blizzard conditions and 2 feet of snow to some communities and knocked out power to tens of thousands of homes and businesses. High winds and blowing snow led meteorologists to categorize the storm as a blizzard in parts of New England, including Boston.

The storm caused problems on the ground and in the air. The flight-tracking site FlightAware reported more than 1,500 canceled flights on Tuesday.

Snowfall totals climbed as the day went on. In New Hampshire, the National Weather Service said that 25 inches of snow was reported Tuesday evening near Derry.

Franklin, Massachusetts, has received 23 inches, East Killingly, Connecticut, 20 inches, and Kezar Falls, Maine, 20 inches.

Tens of thousands of homes and businesses were still without power.

Many school districts across New England will be closed for a second day on Wednesday as the region begins to dig out.
