OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - People are confronting slick roads, massive snowdrifts and bone-chilling cold in much of Nebraska and Iowa as the region continues digging out from a massive winter storm.

Dozens of districts in both states canceled or planned a late start to classes on Monday.

In Nebraska, Omaha Public Power District officials say nearly 250 customers remained without electricity by 7:30 a.m. At the peak of the outages, more than district 19,700 customers had no power.

Wind chills down to minus 15 were reported for Omaha overnight. On Monday morning in Sioux City, Iowa, the wind chill dipped to minus 22.

In Johnson County, Iowa, a pregnant woman and her 2-year-old son were rescued by snowmobile after becoming stuck in their vehicle near Hills on Sunday evening.
