Photos: Deadly storm moves cross country, disrupting travel

A deadly winter storm tormenting travelers across the U.S. since before Thanksgiving packed one last punch of snow and ice as people tried to get home after the holiday weekend.

About 50 million U.S. residents were under some type of weather watch or warning Sunday. The National Weather Service predicted more than a foot of snow in swaths of upstate New York and New England, as well as ice accumulations in parts of Pennsylvania.

The same storm has been pummeling the U.S. for days as it moves cross country, dumping heavy snow from parts of California to the northern Midwest and inundating other areas with rain. It has been blamed for several deaths.
