CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The death toll from a powerful winter storm that pushed through the nation's midsection into the Northeast has risen to 12.
The storm has dropped about a foot in some parts of the Northeast Thursday, a day after it dumped a record snowfall in Arkansas and ruined holiday travel plans around the region.
The National Weather Service says the Northeast's heaviest accumulations will be in northern Pennsylvania, upstate New York and inland sections of several New England states.
In coastal areas, the storm is mostly bringing high winds and heavy rain.
Thousands of travelers were trying to make it home Thursday after the fierce storm stranded them at airports or relatives' homes around the region.
The latest storm-related deaths include a man checking on a disabled vehicle near Allentown, Pa., who was struck and killed Wednesday night, and two people killed in separate crashes in Virginia.
