Severe Cold Hit Northern US States - 4 Dead

A bone-chilling cold wave with temperatures as low as 42 below zero shut down schools for thousands of youngsters Monday, sent homeless people into shelters and put car batteries on the disabled list from the northern Plains across the Great Lakes. At least four deaths were linked to the cold weather.

The cold was accompanied by snow that was measured in feet in parts of upstate New York.

''Anybody in their right mind wouldn't want to be out in weather like this,'' Lawrence Wiley, 57, said at Cincinnati's crowded Drop Inn Center homeless shelter, where he has been living. Monday lows were in the single digits.

With temperatures near zero and a wind chill of 25 below, school districts across Ohio canceled classes. ''We have a lot of kids that walk to school. We didn't think it was worth the risk,'' said Sandusky City Schools Superintendent Bill Pahl.
