October Snow Storm Greatest Hits, Photos

October 30, 2011; 8:30 AM ET

UPDATE 10/31: NOAA has issued an update to the map and list that I had previously provided, and AccuWeather has drawn a map showing approximate accumulations:

The new final totals from NOAA are:

Peru, MA: 32.0"
Jaffrey, NH: 31.4"
Millbrook, NY: 21.6"
Action, ME: 20.0"
West Milford, NJ: 19.0"
Bakersville, CT: 18.6"
Hazelton, PA: 16.0"
West Halifax, VT: 16.0"
Mount Storm, WV: 14.0"
Frostburg, MD: 11.6"
Skyland, VA: 9.0"
West Glocester, RI: 6.6"

ORIGINAL REPORT: The historic October snowstorm is ending in Maine this morning. States of Emergency have been declared in New York, CT, MA & NJ. 2.5 million people lost power (MSNBC) and power companies are warning it may be more than a week before it's restored.

Many big-city records were broken. On land, winds gusted to 69 mph at Barnstable, Mass. Coastal flooding was reported in Massachusetts. As of this writing (9 AM Sunday), waves just spiked from 24 to 27 feet at a buoy off of Cape Cod.

We got a lot of great photos and videos on the Facebook Page and Photo Gallery. Here are a few of the best animal, damage, and snow pics, and below are some of the best halloween-themed pics.
