A wintry storm responsible for deaths in the Midwest blasted the northeastern US, dumping snow and sleet and clogging some of the nation's most heavily traveled highways. The storm has been blamed for at least 36 deaths, mostly in traffic accidents, since it developed last weekend. A 23-year-old woman died Thursday morning when her pickup truck skidded and flipped over on a snowy highway in Waverly, New York, 75 miles (120 kilometers) southwest of Syracuse. Snowfall in the region on Thursday ranged from 2 inches (5 centimeters) to just over a foot (30 centimeters) in some places. The heaviest snowfall was along the Connecticut-Massachusetts-Rhode Island state lines and eastward, said National Weather Service meteorologist Bob Thompson. Thirteen inches (33 centimeters) was reported at Whitman, Massachusetts.
