Snow, floodwaters and houses on the brink across United States

The post-Christmas blizzard that left at least two people dead in the U.S. Midwest and stranded thousands of travelers has fizzled to heavy rain storms that will soak swaths of the southeast, Gulf Coast and New England through the weekend, the National Weather Service said.After dumping more than 6-to-10 inches of snow on the Midwest, the storm dropped about 5 inches of rain in Biloxi, Mississippi, and 4 inches of rain on Baton Rouge, Louisiana and the Gulf Coast late Thursday and into Friday, forecasters said.About an inch will drop on western New York and Pennsylvania and turn into freezing rain in northern New England.

But the Midwest was still digging out of the snow the blizzard left in parts of Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota.A state of emergency was still in effect in Kansas early Friday.A motorist was killed in Kansas on Thursday in a crash blamed on the storm which also caused the cancellation or delays of thousands of airline flights and injured two people on a commercial jet over the Dallas area.
