A deadly ice storm stranded scores of people on slick roads and knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of US homes as winter-weary Americans dug in against Mother Nature's latest blow.

More than 3,700 flights due to take off today were cancelled across the United States due to the wintry blast.

The National Weather Service began warning days ago that a "mammoth dome" of Arctic air would settle over the eastern United States to form a "paralysing ice storm."
