Nor'easter Looking to Miss Sandy-Ravaged Regions

It's weakened off the Atlantic coast


The beleaguered Northeast got some much-needed good news when a nor'easter that threatened to bring new flooding, high winds and even snow on the heels of superstorm Sandy weakened off the Atlantic coast.

The storm had coastal areas of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut on tenterhooks, as many residents are still without power and trying to find shelter, salvage possessions and get essentials like gas, batteries and food.Word that the storm is now expected to veer farther offshore than earlier projections had indicated was welcome.
