Over the holiday weekend alone 100 flights were delayed traveling in or out or within the United States. Storm alerts have been sent out to 15 states informing them to brace themselves for the Winter Storm Ezekiel coming.

On Saturday in Missouri, a five-year-old boy, an eight-year-old boy, and an older man drowned after getting caught in a flooded road that swept them into a freezing river.

In Arizona, another truck was swept into a river that was holding a family of nine. Rescue workers were able to save four of the children and two of the adults but before they could rescue the rest of the children the river took them away and their bodies were found on Saturday.

Bundle Up & Brace Yourself For The Storm

In Utah, a six-year-old boy was riding with his father on a snowplow when he fell off and fatally hit his head . Authorities investigated the scene and found that the icy roads were the official cause and did not blame the father for the boy’s death.

Unfortunately, so many more stories like these have been reported just over the past few days. If you’re in one of the areas that the storm plans to hit just make sure you take all the necessary precautions to stay safe.
