Deadly Southern Storm Causes 500 Plus Crashes

News Staff : Dec 10, 2018  CBN News

More than 1,700 flights were canceled, most of them in Charlotte, NC, which has already had the snowiest December in more than 20 years.

In North Carolina, one driver died and another went missing following storm related accidents. Schools are closed in several cities and more than 100,000 homes are still without power.

The storm dumped up to 11 inches of snow in Richmond, VA and some areas of North Carolina saw as much as 18 inches.

"North Carolina is in the cold icy grip of a mammoth winter storm," Gov. Roy Cooper said. "The state highway patrol has responded to more than 500 crashes just since midnight."

Cooper urged people to stay off the roads as cars skidded out of control with drivers facing whiteout conditions.

Emergency crews including state troopers and the National Guard worked overnight to clear traffic accidents on major roadways.

Interstate 81 in southwest Virginia became particularly dangerous as the snow fell so quickly that snow removal crews couldn't keep up, leading to several tractor-trailer accidents.

At one point, 385,000 people were without power in Virginia, North and South Carolina and other southern states.

More than 1,700 flights were canceled, most of them in Charlotte, NC, which has already had the snowiest December in more than 20 years.

Meteorologists warn that more slick and icy roads may come as snow and ice melt then freeze back over again as temperatures drop again later in the day.

Forecasters predict those dangerous icy conditions may continue at least for a few days for some states. Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
