Snow and ice pummel parts of the US in latest winter storm

Snow and ice pummel parts of the US in latest winter storm

Nearly one in four Americans were under storm warnings and hundreds of thousands were without power Wednesday as the winter blast that wreaked havoc across the nation’s midsection roared into the Northeast.

Heavy snow and a blast of bone-chilling rain grounded flights, shuttered schools, snarled traffic, and cut off electricity in homes and businesses from the Missouri Valley to Maine, affecting some 77 million people.
