(CNN) – At least 12 deaths have been blamed on the severe weather across the nation. On Thursday, snow walloped Washington, Philadelphia and Boston.
A winter storm hit Philadelphia just last week.
"We get about 2,400 calls to our 911 center each day. We got nearly 8,000 calls from the storm last week. By comparison during Sandy, about 6,500 calls at the height," Josh Shapiro, chair Montgomery County Board of Commissioners, told CNN.
"We saw more damage, more power outage in this storm than during Sandy," said Shapiro.
The area is currently expecting between 14 to 18 inches of snow. Shapiro described the period now as the calm between the two storms.
CNN's Margaret Conley reports.
