The hurricane-force storm that roared up the East Coast, dumping as much as 18 inches of snow from the Carolinas to Maine, also unleashed record flooding in the Boston area.
"Historic high tide'' led to the deployment of a number of National Guard high-water rescue vehicles to help stranded residents and motorists. East Coast residents are now bracing for a deep freeze. The blast of record-breaking cold air and bitter winds could make it feel as low as minus 15 degrees throughout much of the Northeast this weekend.
The Greater Danbury area received 8 to 13 inches of snow. The top of the range was Monroe, the bottom was Brookfield. In between, Newtown received 12.6 inches of snow, Bethel got 11, New Fairfield 9.5 and Ridgefield received 9 inches of snow. Both Weston and Wilton got about a foot and a half.
