A man hit by a plow was one of seven people killed in the Northeast snowstorm


Winter Storm Stella, after dumping more than 20 inches of snow on parts of the northeastern U.S., left seven people dead in its wake.

Of those, six people were killed in the U.S. and one in Canada, where the storm continues to rage. 

The storm was not as potent as expected along the coast, but some parts of the U.S. got more than 30 inches of snow, CNN reports.

Here's a look at how the storm hit the Northeast and Midwest. 

How the deaths occurred:

  • Three men died of heart attacks trying to clear snow. Two men were in Milwaukee County, Wisconsin. One was in New York's Staten Island.
  • A snowplow driver was killed in Massachusetts after crashing into an Amtrak snow-plowing train.
  • A truck driver in Canada died after a multi-car pileup in southern Ontario.
  • A man in Connecticut died after being hit by a snowplow.
  • A 16-year-old girl in New Hampshire was killed in a "weather-related accident."

Ice and snow weren't the only danger. Storm winds pushed ocean water into the streets.

One multi-car pileup was caught on Twitter.
