Transcript for Winter Ice Storm Causes Severe Highway Accidents
First, we want to get right to the nasty weather, covering much of america this morning. There's the monster ice storm that caused death, damage and delay, in the middle of the country. And now, a new storm brewing in the northwest. At least 12 dead thus far. And it's not over yet. And ginger zee is on the story. Good morning. Hey, dan. So many folks spent their week looking like this. This picture from dallas. Once we got rid of the ice, it was a lot of snow. In indiana, they had more than a foot in some places. This is almost about 11 inches you're seeing right there. That vincennes picture. That storm has moved on. You see it moving out. Just a few rain showers left in parts of the carolinas this morning. You're waking up in the mid-atlantic or tennessee, and have a winter weather advisory or winter storm watch. This is sunday night into monday, another storm. And, yes, we're talking inches of ice possible, sleet, freezing rain. All that ugly stuff again. Of course, we've got to talk about the west because there's another big one we're talking. That's corvallis, oregon. They have big-time snow coming in. Inches and inches in places that don't necessarily get it. And don't necessarily get it this early. Look how much more snow is going to fall here. I'm going to bring you through the next 24 hours or so. This low-pressure system slips through the west. The mountains picking up quite a bit. Could see sacramento and redding flakes coming in. And little rock, 20 degrees this morning. It does not get any better. And steve osunsami is there with a story on the ice. Reporter: Good morning, ginger. This storm, certainly left its mark here in little rock. The ice, still hard on the ground. The storm, of course, now barreling down on the northeast, delivering its first measurable snow of the season. Overnight, the ice storms that rained down misery on the south friday, hit with every bit as much of a punch to the north and east. Oh, my goodness. We're here. It's definitely here. Reporter: In western pennsylvania, this brinks security truck losing control and slipping on its side. In ohio, drivers trying to change lanes on the slippery highway, left four vehicles on the side of the road. Two people had to be hospitalized. Some words of advice for a driver out in the cold. Don't be out there. Be careful. Reporter: Overnight at the dfw airport in dallas, hundreds of canceled flights left 4,000 people stranded and frustrated, forced to spend the night on cots. This morning, 200,000 still without power, most in north texas. Power lines were helpless to the ice. In arkansas, this power pole snapped in half. Look at what the ice almost did to this bus in downtown little rock. The driver had to slow way down. Conditions are so harsh, at least a dozen people have been killed since the storm. Many in accidents like these. For children here, this was one of the first real winters many of them have ever seen. They told us, it's definitely ice and not snow because the snowballs they were throwing hurt. Yeah. Reporter: Those children hoping they won't have classes monday. And might certainly get their wishes if conditions continue. Great news for the passengers who were stuck at airports overnight. Those flights will be taking off today. Bianna? Good news, indeed.
