There is still plenty of work to do for repair crews trying to restore power to hundreds of thousands of customers in the central Plains and Midwest who lost electricity because of an ice storm.

A mixture of snow, sleet and light rain has been falling this morning across parts of Texas and Oklahoma, where it could be up to 10 days before power is fully restored.

Ice more than an inch thick has glazed much of the affected are this week. At least 25 deaths -- mostly from traffic accidents -- are being blamed on the storm system since it developed last weekend.

Elsewhere, forecasters say more snow, sleet and freezing rain could develop today across the northern Ohio Valley and into New England.
