Deadly winter storm: Winter Storm Deaths

Published: November 29, 2015

Deadly winter storm: Winter Storm Deaths, — A slow-moving wintry storm system that’s being blamed for more than a dozen deaths is moving eastward out of Texas but it keeps coating some states to the north in ice, making driving dangerous.

The band of storms that’s been moving through parts of the Plains and the Midwest since Thursday is blamed for at least 14 deaths, including eight in Texas and six in Kansas. A 70-year-old woman whose car was swept away by flash flooding Friday in Fort Worth remains missing.

Although the icy conditions are expected to persist in parts of Oklahoma and Kansas through the end of today, forecasters say temperatures on Sunday are expected to be above freezing in the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles, allowing the region to thaw out.

Authorities in Kansas are blaming icy roads for four traffic deaths near Wichita on Friday, adding to two others in the state on Thursday.

In central and southwestern Oklahoma, broken ice-covered tree limbs downed power lines and cut electricity to more than 60,000 customers.

Rain is forecast Sunday from Texas to the Mid-Atlantic states. Freezing drizzle is expected in southern Nebraska and central Kansas, while snow is expected from Colorado to the western Dakotas.
