Late-Winter Wallop Shocks New England, Upstate NY
BOSTON (AP) - A 2-year-old boy in Vermont is dead after being hit in his family's driveway by a snowplow driven by a relative.
New England is once again digging out, after a late-winter storm buried parts of the region in more than 2 feet of snow.
In southern New England, flooding closed roads and cut off neighborhoods.
The snow hampered efforts to reach a small plane that crashed in Maine near the Canadian border, killing one person and injuring another. A Canadian search and rescue helicopter eventually reached the site and took the injured person to a hospital in Canada.
The storm pushed the seasonal snow total in Buffalo, N.Y., an inch past 100. Burlington, Vt., registered its biggest March snowfall on record, at more than 25 inches.
Forecasters are warning residents not to get too comfortable after cleaning up from this storm. They say another storm that's been taking shape over the Rockies will be in the Northeast in the coming days.
