The Snowstorm of December 2010

The Fall 2012 Nor’easter
Hurricane Sandy in 2012, resulted in a powerful nor’easter storm and early-season snow in New York. This storm brought harsh winds, rain, and snow to areas of New York. The highest winds in the storm reached 80 miles per hour. The storm caused an estimated $32 billion in property damage and took 53 lives.
The March 2017 Nor’easter
Another major nor’easter struck Upstate New York from March 12th through the 15th, depositing about four feet of snow in a single day. The storm also affected several other states from West Virginia to Maine, but New York saw the worst of the snowfall and winds.
