Tornadoes and historical hail in the United States kill seven and disrupt COVID-19 vaccines




The deadly tornadoes in the southeastern United States and the historic freezing cold in South Texas on Tuesday were blamed for seven deaths and a major blackout that led to the cancellation of COVID-19 vaccines and threatened to disrupt vaccine supplies.


Meteorologists said treacherous weather will maintain its dominance in many parts of the United States from Tuesday to Friday, with up to 4 inches of snow and freezing rain expected from the Southern Plains to the Northeast.


"We call it Storm System 2, with a location very similar to the previous storm," said meteorologist Lara Pagano of the National Weather Service's Weather Forecast Center in College Park, Maryland. He was referring to a system that swept the nation during the long weekend of Presidents Day, dropping snow and ice from Ohio to the Rio Grande.
