TAUNTON, Mass. (AP/WHDH) — A winter storm is winding down across New England but not before bringing blizzard conditions to some areas, power outages to others and making Christmas travel treacherous.

The largest snow accumulations on Monday were in northern New England, with the National Weather Service reporting 13 inches reported on the ground in New Gloucester, Maine.

A rare blizzard warning was issued for portions of New Hampshire and Maine.

Less snow fell in southern New England with most areas reporting 4 inches or less on the ground. But winds were equally fierce — especially along the south coast of Massachusetts.

At 1 p.m., Eversource was reporting more than 14,000 customers without power, the bulk of them on Cape Cod.

A 73 mph wind gust was reported in Falmouth and a 66 mph gust was felt on Nantucket.

In Dennis, a tree came down and blocked the main road. Eversource crews worked to clear the tree limbs so the road can reopen.

It was a similar situation over on Yacht Club Road in Centerville. A Barnstable Police cruiser parked there to keep people from getting injured.

The storm also caused a backup on the Sagamore Bridge. Bourne Police tweeted out a video of a steel light police that fell across the bridge and blocked both lanes leading into the Cape. The lanes have since reopened. No one was injured in the incident.

In Worcester, the city got around 5 inches of snow. Plows have since gone through and the roads are now clear. 7’s Kimberly Bookman has more on the conditions in Worcester:
