Winter storm death toll rises to 3



Officials say at least two more people have died following the vicious winter storm that ravaged the eastern U.S. over the weekend.

A 12-year-old girl was killed in suburban Chicago after a snow fort collapsed while she was playing outside a church as temperatures hovered around 14 degrees (minus-10 Celsius). A utility worker in Connecticut was fatally struck by a falling tree as he was repairing a power line.

That brings the storm's death toll up to at least three people. A snowplow driver in Kansas was killed Saturday when the plow he was driving rolled over on a highway.
