An unseasonable snowstorm has hit the US East Coast, with some areas of Massachusetts seeing more than 27in (68cm) of snow.

The authorities say at least nine people have died in snow-related accidents.

More than three million homes have lost their electricity supply from Maryland to Massachusetts - some residents may be without power for several days.
