By the time the storm reaches the ocean waters east of Long Island and eastern New England on Thursday, it will be explosively intensifying.

Scattered fatalities were reported, including a auto passenger who died after a vehicle on Thursday couldn't stop at the bottom of a steep, snow-covered hill and slammed into a commuter train on its way to Philadelphia. It slammed into a commuter train, killing a passenger in the vehicle, but no one on the train was hurt.
