Flights Cancelled As Major Winter Storm Hits Eastern U.S.


One of the first big winter storms of the season is snarling traffic, closing schools and causing deaths. More than six inches of snow fell on New York City, according to Central Park's official total.  The 900-mile wide storm stretches all the way to central Alabama and is being blamed for the deaths of two people in Mississippi when a tour bus overturned.  There were seven deadly traffic crashes as the storm moved eastward.  Other deaths took place in Indiana, Ohio and Maryland.  Three people died in a single crash in Arkansas.  Nearly 190,000 people are without power.  More than 5,000 flights were delayed.
