Seven killed in first major snow storm of 2019

Snowstorm pounding St. Louis has Washington and Baltimore in its sights

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper has declared a state of emergency that he says will help utility crews restore electricity more quickly to the state's western Piedmont, foothills and mountains after a winter storm. Although the Kansas City area is expected to get up to 6 inches of snow, it should be over by the time the Kansas City Chiefs begin their National Football League playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday afternoon.

Almost 250 flights were canceled nationwide and another 400 delayed as of 10:45 a.m.

A winter storm that dumped heavy snow on the U.S. Midwest, causing at least five roadway deaths, stranding some motorists in Missouri and canceling dozens of flights, marched east toward Washington on Saturday.

"It seems like Central Missouri was the bullseye", Maples said. The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDoT) on Twitter warned residents not to travel in the storm if it isn't necessary. Horton reportedly was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. White said most of the slide-offs and crashes had minor or no damage.

In a suburb of Chicago, Illinois State Police Trooper Christopher Lambert was standing outside his patrol vehicle at the scene of a three-car crash when a driver struck him, authorities say.

"We've had a couple patrol cars struck in the last 24 hours because of that", he said. Jefferson County Sheriff Dave Marshak said on Twitter on Friday there had been 50 accidents as of 5 p.m. CST.

"Given how cold it is across the Midwest and even in the mid-Atlantic region, certainly people who are going to be out are going to want to dress in layered clothing", Orrison said.

Road crews did their best to keep the roads clear.

The moisture and duration of the storm made it unique, Maples said.

Get push notifications with news, features and more. Between 8 to 12 inches of snow is expected near Washington, D.C., with "locally higher amounts" possible.

The American Red Cross shelter remained open overnight for those without power at the Hillcrest Community Center, 10401 Hillcrest Road, Kansas City.

Below are some other must-see images from the heart of this massive storm.

A winter storm that contributed to at least five deaths in the U.S. midwest was pummeling the mid-Atlantic region for a second day on Sunday, bringing snow, freezing rain and power outages.

Temperatures hovered just above freezing for most of the daylight hours Saturday.

Sporadic power outages also resulted, the weather service said, the result of heavy, wet snow that caused some trees to snap and bring down power lines. The storm is projected to affect North Carolina and Virgina, and power outages could happen along the storm's path.
