A severe storm hit the east coast of the United States, leaving about 100,000 residents without electricity in five states since yesterday morning and killing at least two people. The Washington Post reports.
Although the storm loosened its grip, more than 25 million people living in the central Appalachian region remained on alert due to snow and wind, with further snowfall expected in New Hampshire and Maine.
Snow and ice also hit southern areas unaccustomed to such inclement weather, including northern Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia, as well as the Carolinas, where the heaviest snowfall ever occurred. And it is precisely in North Carolina that two people were killed in a car accident, according to reports from the authorities, and the military intervened in over 600 road accidents.
Throughout the area, appeals were made to the population to move as little as possible and only in case of real need and urgency.
