Schools closed, hundreds of flights were scrapped and cities blew the dust off the few snowplows they have Tuesday as the Deep South hunkered down for what could be its worst snow and ice in a generation. From Texas to the Carolinas, almost 40 million people are in the storm’s path. Robert Latham, the head of the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency said, “This is a very dangerous situation.

In Charleston, S.C., and Savannah, Ga., ice was the major threat — as much as a half-inch.
