RALEIGH, N.C. -

A major winter storm is threatening to bring North Carolina to a halt as a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain has snarled traffic and raised the possibility of numerous power outages statewide.

Traffic cameras show cars on some roads in Charlotte barely moving as snow falls on the state's largest city for the second straight day. Reports indicate a similar situation has arisen in Raleigh, where a winter storm in January 2005 resulted in a massive city-wide gridlock that left motorists stuck for hours and children stranded at schools.

The state's utility providers are gearing up for the possibility of outages due to the ice expected to collect on power lines and tree limbs. So far, no significant outages have been reported.
