RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — After an ice storm hit northern North Carolina and southern Virginia over the weekend, thousands are still without power.

Freezing rain led to ice and many downed trees, which have cut power for more than 36,000 customers in the state. At the height of the storm Saturday, nearly 195,000 customers were without power.
