PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Schools are closed and many people remain without power after a storm dropped about a foot of snow in western Massachusetts and northwest Connecticut.

The town of Savoy, Massachusetts, got more than a foot of snow while Lenox got 11 inches on Sunday, according unofficial National Weather Service figures.

About 1,200 Massachusetts Eversource customers were without electricity at the height of the storm but that was down to about 250 by Monday morning, most in Richmond.

Northwest Connecticut was also hit hard, with the towns of Milton and Norfolk getting a foot or more of snow. There were also scattered power outages.

Many school districts canceled Monday classes, including Pittsfield public schools. North Adams schools delayed the start of school by two hours.

The Boston area got a dusting.
