At 2:30 3pm EDT, 1.3 inches of snow was measured at Central Park in New York City. This breaks the old record snowfall total for October of 0.8 inches, set way back in 1925!
As you can see by the above image which was taken in the outskirts of the park and posted on twitter, trees and tree limbs are coming down due to the weight of the snow, and it's only just getting started!
Tree and powerline damage is widespread across southeast New York and Pennsylvania, with widespread power outages reported.
