Feb. 2 (UPI) -- Heavy snowfall from a major nor'easter canceled more flights, cut electricity and closed schools throughout the Northeast on Tuesday.
The low-pressure storm off the northern Mid-Atlantic coast produced more than 2 feet of snow in some areas and forecasters say it will dump more into Wednesday, until it moves north into Canada.
Some of the heaviest snowfall was measured in Passaic County, N.J., and Westchester County, N.Y. Residents began digging out across the region on Tuesday and emergency agencies advised against unnecessary travel.
Flights from Boston Logan International Airport had largely resumed with only about a dozen canceled flights by early Tuesday, according to FlightAware.
New York City's subway system resumed above-ground train service on Tuesday morning and rail and bus lines in New Jersey were expected to reopen by the early afternoon.
A water main break closed some underground subway lines early Tuesday and brought some delays and cancellations, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said.
Many schools in the New York City area area were canceled on Tuesday, forcing students to attend remotely for the second day in a row.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio also said the city has canceled scheduled COVID-19 vaccinations for Tuesday due to the snow.
"[The] last thing we want to do is to urge our seniors to come out in the middle of a storm like this," de Blasio said. "It doesn't make sense."
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy announced that the state's six vaccine megasites would also be closed on Tuesday.
