US: Powerful storm hits central US

A powerful winter storm resulting in snow-packed roads, extensive airline delays, power outages and property damage has hit the Midwest, USA, says Accuweather.

The combination of increasing winds, heavy snowfall and poor visibility has created localised blizzard conditions in parts of Missouri, Illinois, Omaha, Nebraska and Kansas with flights affected at a number of airports in these regions.

Travellers are informed to check the status of their flights to avoid unnecessary delays.
