The death toll from a massive storm that powered from the Midwest and tore through the East Coast late Wednesday and early Thursday has risen to 12, the Associated Press reports.
Leaving roughly a foot of snow in its wake in some parts of the Northeast, as well as a record-high snowfall in Arkansas, thousands of holiday travelers saw their itineraries disrupted.
From the A.P.:
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.
