Digging out: Extreme cold grips snowy Northeast

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - At least 15 deaths have been blamed on a winter storm that dumped nearly 2 feet of snow in finger-numbing temperatures in parts of the Northeast.

Light, fluffy snow meant an easier time digging out than it might have been Friday. The storm has caused just a few thousand power outages.

But the bone-chilling cold could mean a risk of frostbite for anyone who spends more than a few minutes outside.

Wellington Ferreira has been clearing a snowy sidewalk in front of a Somerville, Mass., restaurant. He says: "My ears are frozen."

Wind chills around New England are reported as low as negative-20. Forecasters warn it could be just as bad into Saturday.

Temperatures in the Northeast are expected to rise above freezing this weekend before the arrival of another blast of frigid air already affecting the Midwest.
