US weekend storm: snow and ice forecast as far south as Georgia

Shoppers search for supplies as winter storm moves in from midwest before heading to north-east

Forecasts of snow and ice as far south as Georgia have put a big part of the south-east of the US on an emergency preparedness footing. Shoppers scoured store shelves for storm supplies and crews raced to treat highways and roads as a major winter storm approached from the midwest.

In Virginia, where a blizzard left thousands of motorists trapped on clogged highways earlier this month, the outgoing governor, Ralph Northam, declared a state of emergency and urged people to take the approaching storm seriously.
