Powerful winter storm hits U.S., leaving at least 13 people dead and over 3 million without power, U.S.

Monday, March 6, 2023Updated on Monday, March 6, 2023 09:03 UTC watchers.news

A powerful winter storm swept across the U.S. over the past couple of days, causing death and destruction in multiple states. At least 13 people lost their lives as severe weather, high winds, and flooding hit the South and Midwest. At the same time, winter-weary Northeast and Midwest residents were digging out from heavy snowfall. Thousands of businesses closed, flights were canceled, and more than 1.2 million customers — or approximately 3 million people, were left without power.

The latest NWS forecast warns of hazardous road conditions due to snow and ice, as well as an elevated risk of fire in the Southern High Plains. Coastal rain and higher-elevation snow are expected in California and the Pacific Northwest, while multiple low pressure areas will move across the U.S. through Tuesday.

Three people in Alabama, two in Tennessee, and one each in Mississippi, Arkansas, and California lost their lives due to the storm, while five weather-related deaths were reported in Kentucky.

Heavy snowfall in the Northeast and upper Midwest caused travel disruption, with hundreds of businesses closed and many flights canceled. The National Weather Service (NWS) warned of possible coastal flooding in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, with some areas of New Hampshire and Maine forecast to see as much as 45 cm (18 inches) of snow, accompanied by strong winds that could cause power outages. Utility customers in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Michigan were still without power as of Saturday afternoon, March 4, 2023.

In the upper Midwest, Detroit’s Metropolitan Wayne County Airport was briefly closed due to heavy snowfall, while some areas experienced blizzard conditions with snowfall approaching 7.6 cm (3 inches) per hour. The storm knocked out power to more than 130 000 customers in Michigan, causing further misery for residents who had already been without electricity for up to seven days due to ice storms the previous week.

Meanwhile, residents of California were also hit by the storm earlier in the week, with some stranded in their homes due to up to 3 m (10 feet) of snow.


In the Southern US, Alabama, Louisiana, Kentucky, Arkansas, and Texas suffered the most damage. Tornadoes reportedly caused damage to homes and businesses, and at least four people were killed by falling trees. Winds of nearly 130 km/h (80 mph) were recorded in the Fort Worth suburb of Blue Mound, Texas, with the roof of an apartment building in Hurst blown away. In southwest Arkansas, a couple was temporarily trapped in the bathroom of their mobile home while a tornado passed through, causing major damage.

Southern Missouri and northern Arkansas also experienced heavy rain and flooding, while Minnesota and Wisconsin were hit by freezing fog. According to the NWS, North and South Dakota and Minnesota could see up to 25 cm (10 inches) of snow and 72 km/h (45 mph) wind gusts through Monday.

More than 210 000 customers or about 500 000 people were still without power as of 07:50 UTC on March 6. The worst is in Kentucky, with 129 000 customers without power, followed by Michigan with 40 000, Tennessee with 19 000, and California with 15 000.

According to the latest NWS forecast, a developing storm system will create an area of rain and heavy snow over parts of the Upper Mississippi Valley and Upper Great Lakes on Sunday evening into Monday morning, March 6.

Along the rain/snow line, rain/freezing rain pockets will develop over the region, creating hazardous road conditions. On Monday, rain and snow will continue over the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley, with the rain and snow moving into parts of the Mid-Atlantic by Monday evening into Tuesday. There will also be a region of rain/freezing rain along the rain/snow line over the Mid-Atlantic. On Tuesday, light snow showers will continue over parts of the Northeast.

Meanwhile, an area of upper-level energy will move onshore over the Pacific Northwest and slowly expand eastward to the Northern Plains by Tuesday evening, producing coastal rain and higher-elevation snow over Pacific Northwest and California through Tuesday afternoon. Snow will also develop over parts of the Northern Intermountain Region, Great Basin, and Northern/Central Rockies through Tuesday, resulting in reduced visibility and hazardous driving conditions.

Multiple areas of low pressure will move along a stationary front extending from the Southwest to the Southern High Plains through Tuesday, resulting in an Elevated and Critical Risk of fire weather over the Southern High Plains from Sunday into Tuesday. Strong wind, low humidity, and dry fuels have contributed to the areas of Elevated and Critical Risk of fire weather, according to the NWS.

But how can they call on him (Jesus Christ) to save them unless they believe in him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they believe in him (Jesus Christ) if they have never heard about him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they hear about him (Jesus Christ) unless someone tells them?” —Romans 10:14

Make Your Decision for Christ NOW!!!!!!! Time is Up!!!!!!!

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).

True Church / Bride of Christ Spared from God’s Wrath:

 Romans 5:8-10. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”

Romans 12:19. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 1:10. And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 5:9. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Romans 8:35. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Jeremiah 30:7. Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.

Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
