Ice Storm Shuts Down South

A massive ice storm hammered the South and Midwest states on Friday, killing at least nine people and knocking out power lines. The National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings for most of Friday for Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana. The storm dumped snow in some parts of the Midwest and shut down the rapid transit system in Dallas. Energy companies showed power outrages across Texas and other Southern states beginning Friday morning.
