Residents Urged to Stay Home as Winter Storm Hits Southern States

Parts of the Southeast received more than nine inches of snow after the storm moved through the region on Sunday, knocking out power for tens of thousands of customers and coating highways with dangerous ice.

“North Carolina is now feeling the effects of a winter storm that will continue to move through the state today. More than 41,000 homes and businesses were reported without power across the state as of 11:30 a.m., and that number unfortunately is likely to grow.” “So have your flashlights ready, have whatever you need ready. Stay home. There may be some places where would be out of power for three or four days, so it’s going to be serious.” “This is Highway 441, at the intersection of Georgia 17. As you can see, it’s coming down pretty good here.”
