Winter weather throughout New England caused tens of thousands of power outages and airport delays Wednesday (02/13).

The heavy rains prompted a flood warning throughout most of Rhode Island as crews scramble to unclog storm drains.

Flooded streets have parents at many school districts worried about safety. Officials fear more rain could cause streams to overflow their banks causing serious home damage.

Dozens of roads were left impassable and the freezing rain is also being blamed for a roof collapse on a block in Providence.

Several families on the block were displaced as engineers fear more of the structure could collapse.
