BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Nearly 150,000 homes and businesses in the southeastern United States were without power following a powerful storm that left at least four people dead.
The National Weather Service said early Friday that a storm system was expected to strengthen in the mid-Atlantic region, bringing snow, ice and rain north. Thursday’s storm left a trail of destruction across much of the southeast.
Four storm-related deaths were confirmed in Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee. Virginia’s governor declared a state of emergency because of heavy rain and flooding, which left more than 500 displaced.
