A new winter storm is producing heavy snows from Indiana and Kentucky to parts of New England, the same areas ravaged by a devestating ice storm several days earlier. Many people are still without power in several states as restoration efforts are now hampered by the new storm.

In Kentucky, as much as six inches of snow fell on top of leftover ice on the ground. Temperatures are expected to drop below 10 degrees in the bluegrass state, where more than 300,000 residents have been dealing with having no power for almost a week.

Almost 30,000 people in southern Missouri are starting their second week in the dark. Power companies say that some of the hardest hit areas might not see their power restored until March.

The winter storm is expected to produce up to a foot of snow across parts of North Carolina and West Virginia and bring freezing temperatures southward to parts of central Florida.
Up to six inches of snow is forecast for New York City, which would be their biggest snow of the season.
