    Plenty of Bostonians took to Google Thursday to endure the first major snowstorm of the year, a storm that caused massive flooding damage and left thousands without power in the region.

    Google compiled a list of the top five searches related to the storm and the top five "how to" searches that popped up in the past day in states along the coast.

    Considering Boston got more than a foot of snow and waters flooded the Seaport District, it’s no surprise the top question in Boston throughout the day was "Where is the snowstorm right now?"

    Other top searches included "What to do if power goes out in winter storm?" and "What do you need to have before a snowstorm?"
