Four people were reported killed in the southeastern states of North and SC, where icy roads sent vehicles skittering. But once the storm is gone, it will still leave high winds and cold temperatures in its wake.

"Currently, the main focus is assisting with transportation support and vehicles", the statement said.

Tallahassee, Florida, measured 0.1 inches of snow Wednesday morning, in the first measurable amount in the area since 1989, the National Weather Service said.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal declared a state of emergency in his state for 28 counties, and in North Carolina, Gov. Roy Cooper declared a state of emergency for all eastern and several central counties.

The storm is likely to bring winds between 65 km per hour and 95 km per hour, and around 12 inches of snow, CNN reported.

CT governor Dannel P Malloy said more than 100 warming centres have been opened in 34 towns across the state.

More than 5,000 USA airline flights were canceled.

The Baltimore and Washington, D.C. areas should be spared from significant snow, Miller said, but parts of Maryland and Virginia bordering the Atlantic Ocean could get some fresh powder. Snow fell as far south as Florida on Wednesday.
