11 states declare state of emergency after deadly snowstorm leaves at least 18 dead

The Associated Press.

Washington(ANN)About 85 million people are in the storm’s path. Utilities are bracing for possible mass outages as the storm system moves northeastward.

The U.S. National Weather Service said the winter storm could rank near the top 10 to ever hit the region.

A blizzard with gale-force winds paralyzed the southern and eastern United States on Saturday, dumping snow as millions hunkered down at home, hoping their food supplies would last and the power won’t go out.

Seven states declared states of emergency, as parts of the U.S. capital were blanketed with nearly 60 centimetres of drifting snow. At least 18 deaths have been blamed on the weather, most from traffic accidents. One person died in Maryland while shovelling snow.

The declarations were issued for Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C., New Jersey, New York and parts of other states.
