KILLER COLD – More Than 36 Deaths Blamed on Dangerous Winter Weather

More than 36 people from Missouri to Connecticut have died this year so far from the wild winter weather.
Thousands of Americans are without power, salt supplies stretched thin–

USA Today reported:

As yet another fierce storm wallops much of the nation, creating havoc from Texas through Maine with ice, freezing rain and snow, Americans are growing weary of a winter that keeps spreading misery even to places unaccustomed to frigid conditions.

The latest storm, termed “mind-boggling if not historical” by the National Weather Service, was bringing dangerous ice and freezing rain to heavily populated corridor of the South, from Atlanta to Raleigh, N.C., before moving north with as much as a foot of snow from Virginia to New England.

Though it’s not quite the middle of February, this winter’s toll has already delivered more than a season’s worth of hard punches.

More than three dozen people from Missouri to Connecticut have died as a result of the wild weather, and tens of thousands of canceled flights stranded travelers, sometimes for days. More than 90% of the nation’s 116 million homes will face higher heating bills because of the cold blasts.

Freezing temperatures were responsible for two deaths in New Orleans this year.
