Storm leaves behind death, power outages across South
ATLANTA, GA - Small armies of utility workers labored to turn the lights - and the heat - back on for hundreds of thousands of Southerners as a winter storm that left them without power threatened major cities farther up the East Coast.
The Deep South remained a world of ice-laden trees and driveways Thursday. Several unusual days of sleet and snow were brought on by a powerful system that could dump more than a foot of snow on such metropolises as Philadelphia, Washington and Boston.
At least 12 deaths across the South have been blamed on the stormy weather and nearly 3,300 flights nationwide were canceled with another day of complicated air and road travel ahead Thursday, particularly in the Northeast.
