Severe storms have battered the US eastern seaboard, causing coastal flooding and power outages and bringing travel services to a halt.

More than a million residences were without power in the Northeast and Midwest while rail operator Amtrak suspended its Northeast service.

Heavy rains and damaging winds also led to the cancellation of more than 2,600 US flights.

At least six people have been killed, US media report.

They died when strong winds brought branches or entire trees down on streets, cars, and homes.

Seawater flooded Boston's coastal streets for the second time this year caused by an extreme high tide.

A foot (30cm) of snow fell on northern and western areas of New York state.
