Nation Shivers Under Ice Storm, Cold

Ad Feedback

Parts of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast will have to contend with the same ice storm that paralyzed traffic in north Texas and Arkansas, and caused power outages for more than a quarter million people.

Roads were closed in the Dallas-Ft.-Worth Metroplex and much of Arkansas came to a standstill Friday.

Some weekend football and basketball games were postponed, as were holiday parades and tree lightings, and airlines were forced to cancel more than a thousand flights.

A week of bitterly cold weather descended on the western U.S., and authorities said four homeless people died of hypothermia in the San Francisco Bay area.

Two people died on treacherous roads in Indiana, and officials closed schools Friday after a storm dropped a foot of snow in the Hoosier state and in Illinois.

 In Kentucky, temperatures quickly plummeted from the 70's to below freezing, and part of the state was put under a flood watch Saturday.

More cold air is moving into the west.  Normally balmy Las Vegas may see traces of snow.  Meanwhile, on the eastern seaboard, New Jersey drivers could contend with slippery roads and sleet on highways.

Although winter is nearly two weeks away, western Washington has recorded its coldest temperatures in three years, and Seattle may tie or break record lows for the date this weekend.
