in #texas2 months ago

A massive ice storm is freezing Texas and the southern United States on Wednesday.

Some 60 million people in 22 states -- from New Mexico to Maine -- are on alert for dangerously cold weather, ice and flooding.

Freezing rain and sleet are in the forecast from Texas to Tennessee, before slowly transitioning into just rain as temperatures warm up late Wednesday into Thursday.

More than 350,000 customers are without power in Texas on Wednesday afternoon as a massive ice storm slams the South.

Officials are urging residents to avoid travel across much of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee and Mississippi as the dangerous ice storm coats roadways.
