>> A powerful storm is battering the Northeast, causing seawater to flow into some coastal streets in Massachusetts and bringing heavy snow and fierce winds to the region. It's to blame for this property damage in Maryland that injured a 100 year old woman some 20 miles outside of DC, where the federal government closed offices Friday due to strong wind gusts up to 70 miles per hour.
The storm causing power outages for some 700,000 homes across the Northeast. Dulles Airport, where President Donald Trump had departed from earlier in the day, temporarily evacuated their air traffic control tower due to high wind gust. That's according to the FAA, which said flights were briefly halted too. Hundreds more were cancelled in New York and Boston.
And Amtrak suspended train service along its Northeast corridor due to flooding. Residents of coastal areas that regularly flood in storms were encouraged by officials to evacuate their homes and head to higher ground. Forecasters are also tracking a snow storm heading east from the Ohio valley that could drop significant amounts of snow in northern New York state.
The storm is expected to last until Saturday
