Winter storm hits several states including Ohio, Kentucky

UNDATED (AP) -- Schools are closed and roads are treacherous in a region stretching from Illinois to West Virginia amid a winter storm that's dumping snow and freezing rain.

An icy five-mile stretch of an Indiana interstate has been shut down after more than a dozen accidents within an hour.

Schools are closed in much of West Virginia and Ohio. Some parts of northern Ohio are expecting up to eight inches of snow.

In Kentucky, more than 13,000 customers are reported to be without power, hundreds of schools, businesses, and organizations cancelled today.

Traffic on roadways near Louisville was nearly frozen overnight. Dozens of cars have been abandoned on highways around the city, while sidestreets are lined with vehicles that have skidded into snowdrifts.
