Snowy Weather Continues for South, East

Ad Feedback

A new snow storm has nearly two dozen eastern states under winter weather advisories or warnings. Snow was falling on parts of Alabama early Monday and was it is making its way into Atlanta, Ga.

Winter weather has made traveling treacherous -- and in some places, deadly.

The news of more snow is little comfort to the thousands of passengers who are still trying to get on a flight after last week's massive airline cancellations.

Many passengers were still struggling to leave Atlanta's airport on Monday before the city sees the predicted four inches of snow, and more flights are grounded.

On the ground, weekend traffic accidents were also a sign of the punishing weather.

Blowing snow and slippery roads left dozens of cars mangled in Kansas. No one was seriously hurt there, but blizzard conditions caused a 30 car pile up in Nebraska, and took the life of a University of Nebraska student.

There were also several close calls for people off the roads and inside buildings. The roof collapsed at Buck Branch Farms, an equestrian center in Wilmer, Texas.

"Only hours earlier we had lessons going on and practice going on in the arena, and had it been at that time, it would have been just a tragedy," said Linda Nelon, owner of Buck Branch Farms.

Quick thinking workers were able to avoid tragedy during a hockey tournament at the Rostraver Ice Garden Arena in Rostraver, Pa. They got everyone out just as the roof started to collapse.

"We just grabbed all the kids, and all the parents were starting to come in through the other end where the roof was coming down and I just ran up and told him, 'Get out! Everybody just get out!,'" said Tara Banasick, who works at the rink.

There is now snow on the ground in 49 states. The hold out is Hawaii, which normally has snow on its tallest volcanoes, but this year the Aloha State may not.
