Icy storms cut power to North American homes

Hundreds of thousands of homes in parts of US and Canada have been left without power by ice storms.

    More than half a million homes in the US and Canada are still without power, after days of snow and freezing rain.

    Temperatures have dropped to around minus 15 degrees celsius and there is no sign of a change in the weather for several days.
