Winter storm freezes South

ATLANTA (CNN) - Sunday's winter blast left drivers stranded on highways and roads overnight after several inches of snow fell in just a few hours.

Forecasters said freezing rain will start falling across the region, making for an even more dangerous ride.

Officials are worried about the possibility of major power outages due to the heavy coating of ice.

Georgia, Louisiana and Alabama remain under a state of emergency and below-freezing temperatures are supposed to last through Tuesday.
