    Travel is easing in New England as several states dig out from under a blizzard that left part of the region with more than three feet of snow.

    FOX News Radio’s Courtney Kealy reports from New York:

    The storm started Friday night and dumped up to three feet of snow and knocked out power to more than 650,000 homes and businesses in eight states, from Maine to Pennsylvania.

    In hard-hit Massachusetts, 180,000 lost power.

    (Morrissey) “Conditions are improving, the roads are getting better and seem to be more passable. We’ve seen utility crews from other parts of the country I’ve talked to some folks from Tennessee and Chicago who have come in to help.”

    Donna Morrissey, spokesperson for the American Red Cross, from Dennis, Massachusetts.

    Driving bans have now been lifted and major airports that had closed during the storm are resorting flights.
