A winter storm that hit the U.S. Southeast over the weekend led to power outages for more than 190,000 customers in North Carolina.
Reuters reports authorities are urging residents to stay off the roads due to snow, sleet, and freezing rain, conditions which are expected to continue into Sunday, according to the National Weather Service. The agency reported between four and 12 inches of snow in some areas.
The storm prompted approximately 1,000 flight cancellations at Charlotte/Douglas International Airport, the sixth-busiest airport in the country. North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said Sunday that the state of emergency would remain in effect.
