Transcript for Deadly Ice Storm Grips Nation
saturday night, does this look like texas behind me. A frozen highway, the big rigs at a stand still, a deadly ice storm now grows in scope. More than two dozen states under watches and warnings, look at this, this suv crushed when limbs came crashing down in texas. In tennessee, the teams doing deicing working around the clock before takeoff at memphis. Plunging temperatures in the west, in california just look at the icicles hanging from the oranges. This gentleman from oregon bundled up, cheeks red from the cold and snow. Tonight two more giant storm systems brewing, the dallas airport one of many, hundreds of cancellations there. We begin with abc's steve osunsami and the nightmare for millions of drivers tonight. Reporter: In the north, it wasn't ice, it was snow. From chicago to upstate new york. This large delivery truck in pennsylvania, no match for the storm and the slick roads. Several spots where it changes, you get rain a little bit, then sleet. Then you get snow. Reporter: In texas, a driver was killed when this pickup truck slid off an icy bridge on i-35, and fell into the water below. I-35 in denton is treacherous. Reporter: In the dallas area, nearly 120,000 people still without power. Out of state utility crews, who rushed to arkansas and tennessee, on their way to texas tonight to help out. In little rock today postal carrier johnny richardson needed steal cleats on his shoes and chains on the tires. Rain, sleet or snow, mail got to go. Reporter: People were walking to work. They told us it felt safer than driving. On the back roads and neighborhoods, it's bad. Nobody was driving that yesterday. Reporter: And it's not over yet. Out west, a new storm moving over parts of eight western states. This picture from central california, it was so cold, the drip lines meant to keep the fruit alive froze over. The big problem for cities like little rock, the ice that made the roads dangerous, it looks like snow. But it is definitely hard as ice. And with temperatures not expected to rise much above 30 degrees over the next few days, it could be here for some time. David. What a scene, steve. Thank you.
