Flooding, dangerous roads across the UK and US

BBC Weather

With a storm left by late spring weather systems we’ve recently seen in the US hitting New England, and more systems forecast for later this week, we might just feel like we’re living in the tropics again.

That “bomb cyclone” that affected New England for the first time in a decade Wednesday created a lot of ice and snow and left more than 600,000 Power and Light customers without power.

By late Thursday, upwards of 1,500 are still in the dark in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. Officials say this storm wasn’t the type of snowstorm that would result in unsafe road conditions, but snow in higher elevations throughout the day Wednesday, blowing snow and often very dangerous road conditions.

As Boston and other Massachusetts towns along the southern coast struggled with significant power outages, the rest of New England is experiencing travel restrictions from the nor’easter Wednesday night.

Here’s the damage for you to take a look at on social media, including how it’s impacting your road.
