A record 2.9 inches fell in Central Park in only the fourth snowy October day since records began 135 years ago Massive damage thought to have been caused by leaves still on trees keeping snow weighing down on branches The number of homes without power has grown to over three million At least 12 people were killed by storm.
Chunks of snow and ice falling off the roof of the six-story U.S. Olympic Committee headquarters on Monday shut down a block of South Tejon Street during the busy lunch hour and one westbound lane of Colorado Avenue, potentially adding another costly chapter to the building’s troubled history.
In uptown, ice falling from the Duke Energy Center forced the closure of Tryon and Stonewall Streets on the east and south sides of the building. About a tenth of an inch of ice glazed the snow that fell Monday, making sidewalks and roadways treacherous for pedestrians and drivers in Charlotte. ~Gary O'Brien
