Nor'easter moving out. - Nov 8th, 2012 - National

The snow and high winds are slowly moving out of the New York City area this morning.

But tens of thousands of people who had just gotten their power back after last week's superstorm lost it again with the arrival of this week's nor'easter.

Some residents from Connecticut to Rhode Island got slammed with 3 to 6 inches of snow Wednesday.

Worcester Mass., had 8 inches of snow.

A blanket of thick, wet snow snapped storm-weakened trees and downed power lines from Brooklyn to storm-battered sections of the New Jersey shore and Connecticut, but the nor'easter that interrupted recovery efforts from Superstorm Sandy is pulling away. Roads in New Jersey are clear for the morning commute, and rail lines into New York City are running smoothly.

Several flights have been cancelled as a result of the heavy wet snow fall.
