A series of storms brought weather to a part of the world that is not used to wintry conditions.

Heavy snows in Southern China have brought transportation to a standstill. Shanghai, which rarely even gets the white stuff, reported nearly 9 inches of it. Local governments and the military were using bulldozers and man power to clear the highways of ice and snow. Early damage estimates are about 7.5-billion U.S. dollars. The storms and extreme cold have claimed at least 60 lives, mostly in traffic accidents, according to authorities involved in relief efforts.
