NUEVA YORK (AP) — Una nueva tormenta generó vientos, lluvia, nevadas y la amenaza de inundaciones en varias regiones del noreste de Estados Unidos que empezaban a recuperarse de la supertormenta Sandy.

El temporal reciente amagaba con problemas en carreteras con un manto de hielo, al tiempo que trastocó el servicio ferroviario en Long Island y dejó sin electricidad a personas que la acaban de restablecer tras los daños de la megatormenta.

Pero los afectados tienen cierto alivio a la vista. El especialista Joey Picca, del Servicio Nacional Meteorológico, informó que la nieve y los fuertes vientos tendían a salir lentamente de la zona de la ciudad de Nueva York. Los pasajeros del servico público, sin embargo, podrían tener que batallar con algo de nevadas en la mañana del jueves.

Entre las personas que sufrieron Sandy, la nueva tormenta parecía ya no preocuparles tanto.

Elena McDonnell no desperdiciaba energía inquietándose por el temporal, no después de pasar por Sandy la semana pasada, aunque seguía sin electricidad en su casa en Staten Island.


"Esto ya no asusta", dijo McDonell, de 42 años. "Esto no es nada".


En las circunstancias actuales, una tormenta de este tipo no sería un gran problema. Pero había amplias zonas todavía pasando apuros, pues el sistema eléctrico era demasiado frágil y numerosas víctimas continuaban limpiando sus casas y vehículos en medio de un frío que se acentuaba.
