A broad swath of the East Coast—stretching from South Carolina to Massachusetts—began digging out and cleaning up on Sunday after a major winter storm broke snow-accumulation records, shut down major cities, and left at least 20 dead in its wake.
Hardest hit were major metropolitan areas along the corridor from Washington, D.C., to New York City, which all saw snow totals of more than 2 feet.

In Cape May County, damage was widespread throughout the county’s 16 towns, which also saw power outages, wind damage and beach erosion.
