Storm turns deadly
New York City: A winter storm that contributed to at least five deaths in the US Midwest pummelled the midAtlantic region for a second day yesterday, bringing with it an icy mix that knocked out power, cancelled flights and contributed to hundreds of car accidents.
Virginia State Police said the driver of a military surplus vehicle was killed on Sunday after he lost control on Interstate 81 because of slick road conditions.
Virginia State Police said they responded to more than 300 traffic crashes and helped nearly 200 disabled vehicles in Virginia from midnight to late Sunday afternoon (Virginia time).
The storm knocked out power to nearly 200,000 people in Virginia and North Carolina at its height. — AP
