Winter weather, Trump Plaza, Ash Wednesday: 5 things to know


Brutal winter weather continuing across the country

An unrelenting winter weather pattern – one of the most merciless in years – showed no signs of letting up Wednesday as it left a trail of destruction, power outages and subzero temperatures across dozens of states. And more foul weather is on the way. Another winter storm with snow and ice was forecast to pummel portions of the South and Midwest on Wednesday. In all, 115 million Americans were in the path of the next storm, all the way from Texas to Massachusetts as of late Tuesday. At least 20 people have died as a result of the storms, including three killed in a tornado that tore through a North Carolina town. In Texas, over 3 million customers remained without power as of late Tuesday, and officials say more outages could be coming. Oregon and Kentucky were both reporting more than 100,000 customers without power.
