More than 330,000 homes and businesses were without power in the U.S. Southeast on Wednesday afternoon as a severe snow and ice storm battered the region, local power companies said.

The storm was expected to move into the Mid Atlantic and Northeast states later Wednesday and Thursday, dropping up to a foot of snow in some places, including Washington, Philadelphia and New York.

The hardest hit states so far are Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Louisiana and Mississippi.
