A Nor’easter event dubbed “Snowtober” has dumped an unprecedented amount of snow over major cities in the U.S. Northeast.

New York’s Central Park recorded 7.4 cm of snow – the most snow on any October day since records began in 1869.

Hartford, Connecticut was much snowier with 31 cm while other parts of the state and neighbouring Massachusetts received up to 60 cm of snow.

Washington, D.C. got 1.5 cm which was record-breaking since the city had previously never received snow on Oct. 29.
