It's not over yet.

The Nor'easter tearing through the area has left thousands without power, hundreds of downed trees and power lines and numerous road closures, resulting in treacherous travel that will continue through Saturday morning.

In the Hudson Valley, an 11-year-old boy was killed Friday afternoon when a tree crashed through a home amid the storm in Putnam County.

One town in the area, Greenburgh, had 13 downed tree incidents as of late Friday afternoon.

A total of 70,000 were left without power early Friday afternoon in Dutchess County, making it what a Central Hudson spokesman described as one of the worst storms in the last half century.

Cold temperatures and high winds will continue throughout the night with more power lines, trees and large branches possibly coming down at any time.

Metro-North Railroad will operate on a reduced weekday schedule on all line starting at 10 p.m Friday. A rundown of combined and canceled trains is available here.

A mix of precipitation, including snow, will continue until midnight with frigid wind chills between 15 and 25 degrees and 60 mph gusts before temperatures gradually rise to the mid-30s by 4 a.m.

Winds of 20 to 25 mph Saturday will gust up to 40 mph on Saturday, which will be mostly cloudy with a high in the low to mid-40s.

Sunday and Monday will be sunny with highs each day in the low-40s.
