The US East Coast is hunkering down as a major blizzard hits the region for the first time in four years.

Heavy snow and hurricane-force winds are forecast in some areas, with five states declaring emergencies ahead of the storm's arrival.

Experts warn of "historic" snowfall in some places and flood warnings have been issued near the coast.

More than 80,000 households across Massachusetts were suffering power outages by Saturday morning.

Forecasters say there is a chance the storm, known as a Nor'easter, will blanket the Boston area with up to 2ft (61cm) of snow.

The current record of 27.6in (70cm) within 24 hours was set in 2003.
