Residents of storm-battered communities in New Jersey and New York are bracing for a Nor'easter.

The damage and difficulties left in the wake of Hurricane Sandy still stretch for miles.

Now millions along the East Coast must deal with a second storm.

Snow, wind and rain are expected to hit the area this evening and continue through the night.

The harsh nor'easter has already started dumping heavy snows in central Connecticut.

Snow plows have been moved into place, piles of salt and sand are at the ready, but there's a difficulty in trying to protect an area already ravaged by Sandy.

Hundreds of thousands are still without power.

Tarps cover roofs where they can.

In other places homes and communities have been wiped away, and this latest round of rough weather, will likely set back the recovery.

"I can see us actually moving backwards and people who have gotten power, losing power again," warned New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

The winter storm is already chipping away at travel.

Flights have been delayed and canceled, a situation that like the weather itself is only expected to get worse.

Because of flooding concerns, residents in some New Jersey shore communities and in low-lying areas of New York City have been encouraged to evacuate.
