(CNN) - Crews are working to restore power to hundreds of thousands of people affected by winter storms in the South and in the East.
The lights are back on for many people, but more than 500,000 homes and businesses are still without power.
More than a 1,000 Friday airline flights have been canceled because of the weather.
And there has also been a human toll.
At least 16 deaths have been linked to the winter storms.
In Washington, DC, the body of a man was found dead, half-buried in the snow. He was a patient at a mental hospital who had wandered off days ago.
In Ashburn, VA, a snowplow driver standing by his vehicle was struck and killed by a DOT dump truck.
In Brooklyn, NY, a man driving a bobcat, clearing snow from a parking lot, backs over a pregnant woman, killing her – just three of more than a dozen deaths attributed to the winter storms.
From Louisiana to Connecticut, the ice and snow cut power to well over 500,000 homes.
Officials think the weight of the wet snow may have been too much for a building in Jersey City, NJ.
Part of the roof collapsed onto about a dozen vehicles.
The storms that hammered the South this week swept up the East Coast - the ice and snow piling even more problems on air travelers.
According to FlightAware, nearly 10,000 flights were canceled on Wednesday and Thursday, and into Friday, that number only kept growing.
