Deadly Snow, Tornados, and Floods hit Southern States

Over the course of three days, southern states like Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico have been hit with tornados, floods, and snow. Dozens have been killed. According to the Associated Press, at least 19 people were killed between Wednesday and Saturday in Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Alabama. Tornados in Texas claimed 11 lives, and flooding killed 15 in Missouri. Winter Storm Goliath is now bringing freezing rain and snow to the midwest, including Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan. Over 2500 flights have been cancelled--including 1000 in just Chicago. Numerous areas in Oklahoma and Texas are still without power due to ice storms, as crews work around the clock to restore it. States of Emergency have been declared in many states including Oklahoma (all counties) and Missouri. Northwest Texas saw accumulations of snow between 5 and 13 inches, with drifts up to 10 feet. Forecasters said the storm will continue to bring snow and cold temperatures to the Northeastern states. Screen Shot 2015-12-29 at 11.03.20 AM
