Deadly Temperatures Hit Northeast

Matthew Harriman is the first known casualty of the freezing temperatures and relentless snow that have stormed the Northeast and Midwest over the past two days. The 49-year-old homeless man was found dead in the snow near a campsite in Claremont, south-central New Hampshire. Harriman was believed to have been living in a tent and police believe his death was caused by the unapologetic winter weather, which got down to 10 degrees below zero in Claremont overnight Monday. As of 4 p.m. Eastern time, snow had halted nearly 400 flights in and out of New York and Boston ,plus 79 in Chicago. Bad weather is expected to continue, with another storm brewing later in the week. A record of -11 degrees was recorded in Burlington, Vermont, while Rochester, New York, dropped down to -4 degrees. Stay warm.
