North Texas Getting Brunt of Winter Weather

By  | 

DALLAS (AP) - Icy patches on roadways. Canceled airline flights,
power outages and threats of flooding.

Texans were dealing with all of it Sunday as a winter storm kept
the state in its grasp.

More than 400 flights were canceled at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport because of the wintry conditions.

At least two people have died in traffic accidents on state roadways since the system entered the state on Friday.

In portions of East and Central Texas, flooding was forecast on portions of the Neches and Navasota rivers after heavy rains over
the region the past two days.

The storm, with its promise of a wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow, was forecast to continue to spread southward across the state, reaching Austin and San Antonio by Monday.
