At least 46 people died Wednesday and Thursday, state and local officials said. Twenty-three deaths were reported in New Jersey, 16 in New York, five in Pennsylvania, one in Maryland and one in Connecticut.

The carnage comes days after Hurricane Ida barreled ashore Sunday in Louisiana packing 150 mph winds. At least 9 deaths due to flooding and carbon monoxide poisoning have been reported Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.
