Report: US snowstorm kills 14

Fourteen people have died and about 345,000 homes and business were left without power, the Associated Press is reporting, as the north-east of the US and Canada were hit by a blizzard that dumped up to 3 ft of snow on the most densely populated part of the region.

Utility companies in some hard-hit New England states predicted that the storm could leave some customers in the dark until Monday at least. Most of the power outages took place in Massachusetts.
