NEW YORK — One of the first big storms of the season moved across the eastern half of the country Thursday, causing at least seven deadly traffic crashes and closing schools as it dropped snow as far south as central Alabama. The nasty weather wasn’t finished yet by the Thursday evening commute as it dropped more than an inch of snow on New York City and headed through New England.
So far, eight deaths have been attributed to the storm, including two people who died when a tour bus overturned in Mississippi on Wednesday. There were three deaths in Arkansas, one in Indiana, one in Ohio and one in Maryland.
