Charlotte, N.C. sees icy roads after winter storm Octavia passed through on Tuesday, Feb. 17, 2015.


Winter Storm Octavia has left more than a foot of snow in parts of the South, as well as an ice storm that caused major problems on roadways and hundreds of thousands to lose power.

Here are the latest impacts from the winter storm:
•5 deaths reported, all on icy roads: 3 in Tennessee, 1 in North Carolina and 1 in Kansas.
•Water rescue occurred at a Virginia Beach retention pond Tuesday morning, according to WAVY.com. Two children fell through the ice and had to be rescued by local residents. Their condition is unknown.

Default Re: Winter Storm Octavia: 5 Dead, Hundreds of Thousands Without Power

Americans and Canadians are certainly getting very cold weather this winter, it must be really tough for them. Their dreadful weather aftermath is affecting temps in the Caribbean and in Europe.

Thanks for the report FreaknDavid
