Winter storm hits Mid-Atlantic

Blizzard battered Midwest

The same storm that left up to 10 inches of snow in the Chicago area is having a go at the Mid-Atlantic states this morning.

Forecasters say the Washington, D.C. area could get 3 to 7 inches of snow and up to 16 inches could fall in the western Maryland mountains.

The Jersey Shore still hasn't recovered from Superstorm Sandy, but's it's now preparing for another possible hit Wednesday and Thursday.      

The storm barreled through the Midwest Tuesday.

In western Wisconsin this morning, a semi-trailer slid off a snow-covered interstate and into a river, killing one person. Authorities have been searching for a second person believed to have been a passenger.

Airlines canceled more than 1,100 flights at Chicago airports. Crews worked to keep Lake Shore Drive safe. A blizzard in February of 2011 shut down the lakefront highway at rush hour, stranding hundreds of cars and buses and trapping passengers overnight.

Hundreds of flights were also canceled at Dulles and Reagan National airports in the Washington area.
