Thousands of people in the Northeast were left without power Sunday after powerful, chilly winds swept through the region, with some gusts hitting more than 60 miles per hour.

As many as 200,000 homes across the 13 states were still without power after a windy Saturday night and Sunday morning, according to reports.

New York City, New Jersey and Pennsylvania were among the hardest areas hit, the New York Times reported, with more than 35,000 homes in each state still without power by 2 p.m. Sunday.

The National Weather Service reported gusts Sunday between 40 and 60 miles per hour in New York City. Boston saw wind as well as snow, with local police in that city posting photos of toppled over trees.

But homes were reportedly in the dark from Maine to Indiana.
