The powerful winter storm that swept through the nation’s middle on Wednesday dumped record snowfall in Arkansas, where ice and ten inches of snow snapped power poles and dropped lines.
Some of the nearly 200,000 people who lost power could be without it for as long as a week, said the state’s largest utility, Entergy Arkansas.
Snow hadn’t fallen in Little Rock on Christmas since 1926, but the capital ended Tuesday with 10.3 inches of it.
As the storm, blamed for 12 deaths, moved Northeast, forecasts called for a foot or more snow in some locations.
