Singularities of the Poynting vector field at resonant light scattering by nanoparticles are discussed and classified. It is shown that there are two generic types of them, namely (i) the singularities related to the vanishing of the magnetic (and/or electric) field at the singular points and (ii) the singularities related to the formation of standing waves in the proximity of the singular points. The connection of these types of singularities to the topology of the singular points and the space dimension (3D vs. 2D) is revealed.
