A storm along the east coast of the U.S. has left some areas with over a foot of snow and thousands of power outages.

According to reports, nearly 250,000 residents in Northeastern states lost power Tuesday morning due to the rare late-April nor’easter. New York had more outages than any other state affected, as over 160,000 customers lost power.

Snow was falling at a rate of 1 to 2 inches per hour across upstate New York. Parts of Pennsylvania saw about 16 inches of snow.

"Temperatures will be cold enough to make it seem as though the calendar reads 'February' and not 'April'," said Weather Prediction Center, according to CNN. "The same can be said in the Midwest where daytime temperature anomalies of 15 to 20 degrees below normal are expected on Tuesday."

Right now, the storm is sparking off intense rain in a few southeastern states and will continue to escalate as it reaches areas on the east coast.

Major cities including New York, Boston, and Philadelphia have also felt the effects of the storm.

"A coastal storm impacts the region tonight, bringing heavy rain, strong winds, and coastal flooding," the National Weather Services of New York tweeted Monday. "Winds gradually increase through the day, and rain overspreads the region this evening, continuing into the overnight."
