    Winter Weather: Ice Storm Leaves 330,000 Without Power in South

    More than 300,000 people woke up without power after a rare band of snow and ice sliced across the South, NBC News reported. The winter storm system dropped another round of snow on the Northeast and winter-weary New England. But the system did most of its damage in the South, where roads were slickened and more than 1,000 flights were canceled. Power was out for 153,000 customers in Georgia, 76,000 in South Carolina and 35,000 in North Carolina, plus tens of thousands more in Tennessee, Arkansas, and Washington, D.C. Five states declared emergencies, including Tennessee, where hundreds of people were stranded on snowy, icy roads.
