RIVERDALE - While millions across the east coast are without power this evening after an early nor'easter blanketed the region with snow and took down power lines, residents in hard-hit Riverdale are working to clean up.

As of 5 p.m. about 2,000 residents are without power in Riverdale, according to utility officials.

The power outages aren't the only issue that residents are dealing with. The fallen trees are blocking roads and some branches have fallen on cars, crushing them.
