Parts of Arkansas may be in the dark into the New Year after a massive winter storm knocked out power to more than 2,000 customers.
At least 15 inches of snow fell in some Arkansas counties, felling power lines and causing major damage that's taking work crews more time to repair.
It could be the New Year before service is fully restored.
The same storm spawned tornados across the South and blanketed much of the Northeast in snow, causing a nightmare for holiday travelers.
"You couldn't even see the road. [There were] huge drifts and you couldn't see the middle of the road and the visibility was horrible, so it was just a dreadful drive. We couldn't go any faster than 25 miles per hour," one traveler said.
The storm is being blamed for a dozen deaths across the country.
