Ice fells trees in Derry, NH

Emergency crews are scrambling in the Northeastern US after an ice storm felled ice-coated trees onto power lines knocking out power to thousands of homes and businesses.

States of emergency were declared in Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and upstate New York.

The Red Cross opened shelters for those who won’t be able to return home until power is restored over the next few days.

NB Power crews were called in to help restore power in Maine.
