UNDATED (AP) -- The nor'easter that moved up the East Coast is being blamed for more than 200,000 additional power outages in the same areas that were hit by Superstorm Sandy.

More than 750,000 homes and businesses, mostly in New Jersey and New York, are in the dark. That's down from a peak of more than 8.5 million following Sandy.

The storm, which brought gusty winds, rain and snow, didn't cause the flooding that had been anticipated. It's now moving into New England.

In New York, some sections of Queens and Staten Island hard hit by Sandy got up to 6 inches of snow yesterday. More than 6 inches of snow fell in parts of Connecticut and Rhode Island.
