Forest damage from ice storm?

	I have seen the reports of extensive damage to maple and other deciduous
trees from the ice storm that recently hit the NE States and eastern Canada.
With ice build up over 4 inches in places, I am wondering how the coniferous
forests are standing up?  That much ice seems like it could do significant damge
to softwood stands, especially if the ice stays on the trees for a while yet.
Anybody have any information on this?
