Winter Storm Brings Ice And Freezing Rain To Central U.S.

Icy road conditions caused fatal traffic accidents in Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma.

CHICAGO, Jan 15 (Reuters) – A winter storm battered a large swath of the central United States on Sunday with ice and freezing rain, creating dangerous driving conditions that caused at least five traffic-related deaths and leaving thousands without power.

The storm led the National Football League to delay the start of a playoff game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Pittsburgh Steelers in Kansas City from noon to 7:20 p.m. on Sunday, when the worst of the bad weather was expected to have passed though the area.
