ATLANTA (AP) - Parts of the Southeast are digging
out from a winter storm that dumped snow around the region and played a
role in at least one death.
Weather warnings and advisories were issued
Thursday for sections of Alabama, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina,
South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
In Virginia, the areas hardest hit Thursday and
Friday are in the southwest, where the National Weather Service says 13
inches were reported in Giles (jyls) County, while Grayson County and
the Galax (GAY'-laks) area received about a foot. The state's western
mountains received 6-9 inches while several inches or more were reported
in central and eastern Virginia.
