UNDATED (CBS) -- Millions of people are still without electricity after a powerful nor'easter pounded the northeast this weekend.

The storm set records for the amount of snow and people in the dark.

Power lines are down and electricity is still out to more than two million people from Maryland to Maine.

Governor's in New Jersey and Connecticut say power outages are worse than records set during hurricane Irene earlier this year.

In Teaneck, New Jersey fire investigators are working to figure out if the loss of power contributed to this deadly fire Monday morning.

Many people will spend the day cleaning up.

Saturday's storm dropped more than two feet of snow in some areas weighing down trees that still have their leaves.

It's Halloween and with so many streets covered in debris Connecticut’s Governor is sending a warning to parents who plan to let their children trick or treat tonight.
