NEW YORK CITY - A powerful storm is hammering the Northeast and its intensifying.

It's the second big Nor'easter to hit in less than a week and more than 100,000 homes and businesses still have no electricity.

Whiteout conditions are making driving hazardous in eastern Pennsylvania as a second Nor’easter takes aim at the region.

"The worst is yet to come. And accumulations will be in the double digits around here," said New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy.

Many areas will get more than a foot of snow.

Parts of Massachusetts and Pennsylvania could see up to 18 inches.

And this round of snow is heavier and wetter than the last, so it could snap trees and power lines already weakened by last week's storm.

Along the coast in Connecticut and Massachusetts, residents are bracing for more flooding, but tides are lower this time around.

In Times Square, the snow and rain have been coming down all day and thunder has been roaring overhead as New Yorkers go about their business.

"I work for Uber so there is an opportunity for use to get out here to make some extra money, yeah!" said David Brown Jr., a NYC Uber driver.

Airlines have canceled about 3,000 flights and the roads are no better.

Pennsylvania and New York officials have banned big rigs from several major highways and emergency officials are begging drivers to stay home.
