Transcript for Deep Freeze and Deadly Ice Storms Moving Across the Country
That deadly ice storm sweeping across the country and Woodward, Oklahoma, everything covered in ice and branches are cracking under the pressure. Ginger has the latest. That is a half to one inch of ice in a lot of spots of the out of Woodward, it's moving to the north. Places like Waterloo, Iowa, an ice storm warning. Binghamton, New York, freezing rain advisory and so many on alert for that snow, rain, southern end of Texas, severe weather, but it's that wintry mess in Lincoln, Nebraska, where we find our Adrienne Bankert this morning. Reporter: Good morning to you, ginger. Yes, the glaze that's formed here in Lincoln coupled with the freezing rain we've been seeing all night has created this layer of ice on top of ice in some spots. We traveled nearly 500 miles from Oklahoma to Kansas now Nebraska talking to people about conditions where they live. Some cities dodged a bullet. Others took a direct hit from this ice storm. This morning, deadly ice storms crippling the heartland, watch as this car hits a patch of black ice in Kansas City, sliding at least 100 feet down the road through a red light. Countless close calls Sunday like this highway trooper quickly maneuvering out of the way to avoid a collision with a semi truck. Here in Nebraska, dangerous icy roads causing these two semis to collide in a fiery crash on interstate 80. Both drivers survived. Others were not as fortunate. Since Friday at least nine people have died in weather-related car accidents. It's even too slippery to walk outside. This Missouri deliveryman taking a tumble. Oh, are you okay? Reporter: The ice reaching up to an inch thick in some parts of the country coating everything from sidewalks to cars. And you know what, ginger, here in Nebraska it's kind of unsteady making some of these turns like we're about to make right now but trucks are out putting the anti-brine on the roads. Parking lots and sidewalks can be really icy. Tough to walk in some places. Back to you. Adrienne, thank you. You see the rain falling but it's falling into a cooler layer of air where it freezes on contact. Just because you look out the window and doesn't look like frozen it may be frozen on the ground. How it'll move from this morning that pink area as the area is you'll want to watch. By 5:00 P.M. Minneapolis will get into it, central Michigan and central Wisconsin and moves into the northeast, new England by Tuesday. Tuesday morning, west of Boston into parts of interior new England into the mountain areas we could see significant icing, y'all, still in the next 24 hours so we're covering this and a whole new storm I've got to tell you about for Oregon and Washington state. All right. Hello, January. Thank you very much, ginger.
