These Places Got the Biggest Gusts, Most Snow from the Nor’easter

Friday's monster nor'easter has moved out, but it's not one that many in the tri-state will soon forget.

From late-season snow that put an exclamation point on the winter to powerful gusts that knocked sent trees and utility poles crashing into homes and across roadways and railroad tracks, this storm will leave its mark for many. 

One measure of that impact is the data captured by the National Weather Service from the March storm. Here are the snowfall totals and top wind gusts at recording stations across the region:
