A deadly and powerful winter storm is slamming parts of the Midwest. There are reports of up to two inches of snow are accumulating an hour.

By the time this storm makes its way to the east coast, Chicago could be buried under nearly a foot of heavy wet snow.

Cities from Washington to Boston are already taking precautions - calling in extra utility crews as they brace for what could be massive power outages.
