Many tribes are dealing with the extreme weather ahead of the holiday season
December 27, 2022
Tens of millions of Americans endured bone-chilling temperatures, blizzard conditions, power outages and canceled holiday gatherings Friday from a winter storm that forecasters said was nearly unprecedented in its scope, exposing about 60 percent of the U.S. population to some sort of winter weather advisory or warning.
More than 200 million people were under an advisory or warning on Friday, the National Weather Service said. The weather service's map "depicts one of the greatest extents of winter weather warnings and advisories ever," forecasters said.
Tribes throughout the Northwest, Rocky Mountains, Great Plains and Midwest also battled the extreme weather conditions as the storm moved across the country.
