      Parts of New England were left with mountains of snow on Friday morning after a nor'easter moved through the region.

      Naples, Maine, about 30 miles northeast of Portland, received at least 27 inches of snow. Parts of Maine had intense snowfall at a rate of 3 inches an hour.

      The potent storm sparked thundersnow in Boston and Portland, Maine, on Thursday.

      More than 100,000 were without power in Maine as of early Friday morning. Thousands lost power in New Hampshire during the storm. Snow packed roadways across New England and created hazardous travel.

      One fatal accident occurred in Vermont on Thursday afternoon. A man's car slipped off a road in Cornwall, Vermont, and collided with a tree. Snow was falling at the time of the crash.
