Storm dumps snow on South, heads out to sea
RICHMOND, Va - February 20, 2012 (WPVI) -- A winter storm that dumped several inches of snow across parts of the South, causing power outages, slippery roads and numerous accidents during the Presidents Day holiday weekend, is moving out to sea.
Crews on Monday were working to restore power to tens of thousands of households that lost electricity as a result of the storm.
The storm brought as much as 9 inches of snow to some areas on Sunday as it powered its way from Kentucky and Tennessee to West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina. The storm system was expected to push off the coast early Monday, with the nation's capital getting only snow flurries.
The storm comes toward the end of what has been an otherwise mild winter in the region.
