Winter Weather, Flooding, Hammers US, At Least 14 Dead

Flood warnings remained in effect Sunday across much of the south-central United States, after a deadly storm on the nation's busiest holiday weekend covered parts of Arkansas, northern Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas with heavy rains and ice.

Authorities reported 14 deaths in Texas and Kansas since the slow moving storm began charging through the southern plains on Thursday -- America's Thanksgiving Day.

Officials in Oklahoma said more than 70,000 homes and businesses were without power Sunday, after freezing rain coated large parts of the state and collapsed power lines.  Authorities said an additional 10,000 homes were without power in nearby Kansas.

In north Texas and Arkansas, authorities were bracing for more flooding from rain-swollen rivers.  Texas authorities placed the state's record year-to-date rainfall total at 142 centimeters.

A separate storm brewed Sunday in the Rocky Mountains and began moving eastward through the Northern Plains toward the Upper Midwest.  Forecasters said as much as 30 centimeters of snow could coat the vast region by Wednesday.

    La gobernadora del estado norteamericano de Oklahoma, Mary Fallin, se vio obligada a declarar un estado de emergencia debido a la tormenta invernal y las inundaciones que causaron 14 muertos este fin de semana, reporta el domingo el diario USA Today.

    Según la oficina de Fallin, unos 100.000 hogares se quedaban todavía sin electricidad el domingo por la tarde a causa de la lluvia helada, el hielo y la aguanieve.
