US Weather forecasters predict another winter storm system will hit the northeastern USA later this week, as households in the region are still without power from last week’s blizzard.

At least seven people, including two children, died in Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, Maryland and Virginia during the first winter storm, which blasted the region last weekend.

Winds toppled power lines and flooded coastal towns throughout the Northeast as about 2 million homes and businesses lost power.

About 365,000 people were without electricity in Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Delaware on Monday, NBC News reported.

This time around, meteorologists issued a winter storm watch for parts of New England down to New York and New Jersey. The storm is expected to reach the Long Island and New Jersey shorelines Wednesday evening and night, bringing heavy snow and rain.

New York is expected to receive up to 10 inches of snow and Philadelphia is forecast to see 3 inches to 6 inchesWashington and Baltimore will fall in the southern portion of the storm’s snow production Wednesday and are expected to experience little to no snow collection.
