The impact of a powerful nor’easter diminished on Saturday after the storm caused chaos along the U.S. East Coast, halting trains and forcing airports to ground flights as high winds and heavy rain knocked out power and flooded Boston streets.

Hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses were still without power on Saturday along the Atlantic Coast, and flight delays continued but at a lower rate as the storm system pulled away from the New England coast.
