A state of emergency has been declared in North Carolina, with some areas reporting as much as 0.5m (18.5ins) of snow over the weekend.

Further north, it was ice and snow.

About 1,990 departures had been canceled at airports in the region by Sunday evening, according to the flight-tracking service FlightAware. But on Sunday morning, they woke up to see 6 inches of snow on the ground.

Power outages are likely and air travel will be restricted.

"North Carolina has gotten through the worst of the storm, but we need to stay vigilant", North Carolina Gov.

About 300,000 people in the USA southeast were without power today and hundreds of flights were cancelled after a storm dumped 20 inches of snow and left one motorist dead.

"This storm dropped staggering amounts of snow, ice and rain across our state", the governor said.

A spokesman for the utility said it had about 9,000 employees working to assess damage and restore power Sunday, the Herald-Journal reported.
