10+ Dead From Snow, Ice, and Plunging Temps in South

Snow, ice, and record cold temperatures across the South caused chaos Wednesday, sending cars sliding off roads and leaving at least 10 people dead. One of those killed was an 8-month-old baby in a car that slid off an overpass into a Louisiana canal. At least seven other deaths were reported in Louisiana, Georgia, and West Virginia due to cars spinning out of control in icy conditions. Texas has also reported deaths caused by low temperatures, with a homeless man and 82-year-old woman suffering from dementia among those killed by exposure. The brutal weather also caused government offices and schools to shut down in various cities, while icy runways prompted flight delays and cancellations in New Orleans, Memphis, and Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina.
