The winds took their toll on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel when a tractor-trailer plummeted into the cold waters below.

The driver 47 year-old Joseph Chen from North Carolina was rescued but later died.

In northern Delaware there were gusts of up to 40 mph in the Delaware Bay with traces of snow along the coast.
