Snow And Ice In Illinois And Indiana As Storm Moves North

Posted: Wednesday, December 26, 2012 -- 7:15 a.m.

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Snow and ice are covering roads in southern Illinois and southern Indiana, and officials are urging residents to stay home if they can.

State police report a number of slide-off accidents in the Evansville, Ind., area. And there are white-out conditions on Interstate 64.

An enormous storm system that brought snow and sleet to the nation's midsection -- and tornadoes to the Deep South -- is now moving its way toward the Northeast.

A lot of people who traveled for Christmas are having trouble getting back home today. Hundreds of flights have been canceled -- mostly at airports that were in the path of the storm, or will soon be affected by it.

The storm system has been blamed for three deaths and several injuries.

The National Weather Service says 34 tornadoes were reported yesterday in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.
