Hundreds of vehicles were stranded for more than 10 hours Tuesday on the main north-south interstate highway on the east coast of the United States, known as I-95, as a result of the snow storm that hit this side of the country.

The Voice of america found that snow covers the important highway. Just a few minutes ago, traffic was beginning to move slowly.

Transportation officials said there were multiple crashes, some of which involved tractor-trailers on the road. The drivers had been trapped in their vehicles since at least 7 p.m. on Monday, some of them accompanied by minors, and even without food or water.

Virginia highway authorities reported that they are working to clear the area of ​​ice from roads that remained frozen due to the low temperatures at night.

The storm brought snow and high winds to the East Coast and parts of the southern United States, causing power outages for hundreds of thousands of people and the office closings of the federal government in Washington.

As of Monday, about 10 inches of snow had been recorded in Washington, as well as in neighboring areas in Virginia and Maryland.

The storm spread from Florida to New Jersey, and parts of Florida saw a rare layer of snow.

Strong winds left more than 500,000 customers without power in the storm's range, which included parts of Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, Kentucky, the Carolinas and West Virginia.
