A man drowned in Oklahoma and the storms even touched the midwest where there was at least one death on an icy highway in Iowa.

"Most river sites have rising water levels", the National Weather Service said.

Other fatalities were caused by the specific weather hazards affecting different regions, including icy conditions in Texas, a strong tornado in Alabama, and extreme winds in Louisiana, which were so strong that a trailer was lifted into the air and carried hundreds of feet away.

At least three homes were destroyed by the Arkansas tornado, said Logan County Emergency Management Coordinator Tobi Miller, but no injuries were reported. A couple in nearby Bossier Parish were killed when the storms demolished their mobile home.

Elsewhere in Louisiana, a man was killed when a tree fell on his home, according to CNN.

More than 139,000 people were without power in Alabama, according to Alabama Power.

Hundreds of thousands of people were left without power from Texas to Ohio.

Elsewhere, 105,000 outages were reported in Georgia and 23,000 outages were reported in Tennessee.

More than one centimetre of ice was predicted to cake highways and roads across the south and northeast from Saturday night to Sunday morning, he said.

The California Democrat also warned the Senate, where Republicans have a narrow majority, against dismissing the impeachment case. This past week, McConnell announced that he has the 51 votes required to launch the trial on those terms, and not Pelosi's.

Downed trees and power lines littered some Louisiana roadways. There were numerous downed trees and power poles, some of which will need to be replaced, according to the utility.

On Alabama's Gulf Coast, Baldwin County canceled school activities including sporting events that were scheduled for Saturday.

In Wisconsin, high winds, towering waves and flooding caused millions of dollars in damage to Port Milwaukee on Lake Michigan.

An already deadly line of powerful storms is bearing down on the eastern half of the United States, threatening unsafe winds and tornadoes in the South and potentially crippling snow and ice in the Midwest through the weekend, with heavy rain and flooding in between.

The National Weather Service says it was a tornado packing winds of at least 134 miles per hour that hit Alabama's Pickens County on Saturday, killing three.

Chicago: More than 1,000 flights were cancelled as a winter storm hit the Chicago area with heavy winds and rain. More than half the homes were in New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Delays at O'Hare and Midway were averaging around 15 minutes, the department said. A Flood Watch is also in effect for some counties.

The weather service said rain, possibly mixed with snow, freezing rain and sleet was expected through Saturday afternoon in the Chicago area before changing by evening over to snow and sleet, possibly mixed with freezing rain.
