Deadly Ice Storm Knocks Out Power For 1.3 Million Across Nation

Posted: Updated:

FRANKFORT, Ky. — Gov. Steve Beshear (beh-SHEER) is raising his state's death toll to 24 in a storm that caked several states in ice last week.

That means at least 55 people have died in the storm nationwide.

Beshear says in a letter to President Barack Obama released Monday that 10 of the deaths were from carbon monoxide poisoning and at least nine others from hypothermia.

The governor's office isn't giving details on the individual deaths.
