Storm Inga: Snow Causes Travel Chaos as Areas Declare State of Emergency

At least 10 deaths from snow ice and record cold in South Storm Inga: Snow Causes Travel Chaos as Areas Declare State of Emergency
Lora Ball | 17 January, 2018, 23:38

The weekend is expected to warm up, with temperatures nearing 50 degrees.

Not only did Winter Storm Inga dump several inches of snow in parts of Tennessee and Missouri, a magnitude 3.6 natural disaster rattled the region. The weather service warned of the potential of four or more inches of snow from central MA into eastern Maine. Unsafe wind chills prompted school systems to close Tuesday across Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Kansas and Missouri.

Massachusetts' second significant storm this month is expected to drop up to a foot of snow on parts of the state - though this time, it will be Western Mass bearing the brunt.

Bitter cold continues to grip parts of Texas as Houston-area authorities urge people to stay off icy roads and a state electricity supplier says a new record was set for power use as people reach for the thermostat.

A strong cold front moving east into the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast early this morning will bring accumulating snow across south-central Virginia into central North Carolina.

Low temperatures and unsafe wind chills are closing schools across Kansas. Several Johnson County schools, including Shawnee Mission, Olathe and Blue Valley, had previously scheduled a professional development day for teachers Tuesday.

More than 70 school systems in Alabama were closed Tuesday and others were dismissing students early.

Forecasters aren't predicting a large amount of snow, just 2 inches (5 centimeters) or less with more in spots.

Temperatures are likely to be above freezing at the onset of the storm.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper warned at a news briefing that cold temperatures Wednesday night would make travel conditions even more hazardous.

Snow was falling before dawn Tuesday in parts of Louisiana and Mississippi.
