Snowstorm slams eastern US: 8 dead, power knocked out

(CNN)A strong wintry storm still is dumping snow Friday morning in parts of the Northeast after creating traffic havoc that claimed at least eight lives across the country’s eastern half and knocked out power for tens of thousands of people.

A turbulent mix of rain, snow and ice that initially hit the Midwest caused headaches late this week from the South to the Northeast, leaving up to a foot of snow in interior parts of the Northeast and widespread freezing rain and ice accumulations elsewhere. Conditions prompted school closures, hours-long delays for commuters and hundreds of flight cancellations.
