A massive winter storm that contributed to at least nine deaths in the Midwest is pummeling the mid-Atlantic region for a second day. The storm is bringing snow, freezing rain and power outages.
More than 240,000 people were without power Sunday across North Carolina, Missouri, Kansas and Virginia.
The National Weather Service reported close to a half-inch of ice in some sections of western North Carolina, leading to fallen trees and power lines. The remainder of the state received mostly a cold rain or freezing precipitation that caused few problems.
By late Sunday afternoon, the Washington, D.C. metro area, northern Virginia and parts of Maryland had total snowfall accumulations ranging from five to eight inches. Central Virginia, including Richmond, had much smaller accumulations -- as little as one inch, but the snow was followed by hours of sleet and freezing rain.
Virginia State Police said they responded to more than 230 traffic crashes and helped more than 100 disabled vehicles in Virginia from midnight to noon Sunday.

Winter storm warning lifted in Indiana
The National Weather Service has lifted a winter storm warning in central Indiana after more than 7 inches of weekend snow. Some Indiana sheriffs say drifting snow has closed roads. Many vehicles remain stuck from Saturday.
In Ripley County, the sheriff's office urged residents to stick to essential driving only on Sunday. Indiana State Police say dispatchers in the Lowell district handled more than 650 calls Saturday. Troopers in the district responded to at least 10 personal-injury crashes and 52 property-damage crashes on interstates.
Sgt. John Perrine says drivers need to slow down in bad weather. He says snow doesn't carry liability insurance -- because a crash isn't the fault of snow.
