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 7.
Officials in Ohio are blaming the bad weather for a crash that killed an 18-year-old girl, who lost control of her car Wednesday afternoon and smashed into an oncoming snow plow on a highway northeast of Cincinnati.
The storm is expected to drop one to two feet of snow on parts of the Northeast just a day after it swept through the nation's middle, dumping a record snowfall in Arkansas and ruining holiday travel plans.
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 before the storm heads to Canada on Friday.
Despite the wet weather, no flights are delayed Thursday morning cities like New York, Philadelphia and Boston.
