WATCH Flash Freeze Causes Icy Conditions Across Northeast

Sections of the country face tricky travel conditions and bitter cold this morning after a major storm that's being blamed for at least seven deaths.

Temperatures dipped into the single digits and teens across the Northeast and Midwest overnight, with snow and slush still coating roadways.

The storm brought more than a foot and a half of snow in some areas, including 19 inches of snow in Chicago, and 18 inches expected in northeastern Maine.

New England was buried in snow, a brutal repeat of last week’s wintry conditions. Millions of people are digging out today.

One of the storm’s victims, Cynthia Levine, 57, was struck and killed by a snow plow in Weymouth, south of Boston.

In Delaware County, Pennsylvania, strong winds knocked a tree onto the road, killing a driver.

After the snow stopped falling in Chicago, many commuters were embroiled in traffic crashes. At least 45 vehicles were involved in a pileup on Interstate 294 in the Chicago suburb of Hickory Hills. Eight people were taken to area hospitals, but none of the injuries were believed to be life-threatening.

Train travelers also faced troublesome commutes. On Long Island in New York, the tracks were deliberately set on fire to stop them from freezing over. Outside Chicago, 70 passengers were stranded after an Amtrak train stalled, finally reaching the destination nearly six hours later.

In Boston, some train commuters were stuck for nearly two hours because of an outage.

The snow also postponed the victory parade for the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, with the celebration now scheduled for Wednesday.
