The first major blizzard to hit the region in four years struck the northeastern United States Friday night. By Saturday afternoon, up to two feet of snow had blanketed Boston, over 80,000 Massachusetts homes were without power, and airlines had canceled more than 5,000 U.S. flights, BBC reported.

Amtrak service along the Boston-to-Washington corridor was suspended or limited, and five states declared emergencies.

Wind gusts of up to 75mph lashed parts of the coast.

Up to two feet of snow fell on parts of Boston in what AccuWeather predicted could turn out to be the biggest snowstorm ever to hit the city.
