ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Two deaths in upstate New York were attributed to the Northeast storm that dumped up to 3 feet of snow on New England and stranded drivers on the eastern end of Long Island.
State police say a 23-year-old man died when the tractor he was using to plow his driveway overturned in Columbia County Friday evening. And a 74-year-old man died when a car slid and hit him as he walked on a Poughkeepsie road.
The National Weather Service reported snowfall totals of 10-12 inches in the mid-Hudson Valley and Adirondacks; 8 inches at Buffalo; 12 inches at Rochester; 6.5 inches in suburban Albany; and 9 inches in Syracuse.
There were scattered power outages upstate, but most service was restored by late Saturday morning.
