National Guard Assisting Storm Victims in Missouri

JANUARY 15, 2007 - Posted at 8:22 a.m. CST

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Hundreds of thousands of people remain without power, after a powerful -- and deadly -- ice storm.

As of late last night, about 330,000 customers -- most of them in southwest Missouri -- were without power.

The storm is being blamed for six deaths.

State officials say five of the deaths are traffic-related. One in Franklin County was a result of carbon monoxide exposure.

About 330,000 households are without power today. A state of emergency in Missouri continues.

Governor Blunt says about 350 National Guardsmen are helping in areas hardest hit by the weather.

They're going door-to-door checking on residents. They're also clearing slick roads of downed tree limbs and power lines.
