SILVER SPRING, Md., Feb. 28 (UPI) -- A winter storm that walloped much of the U.S. midsection with snow measuring in double digits lingered in New Hampshire and Maine Thursday.

A winter storm warning was in effect until 5 p.m. Thursday for the areas, which are expected to receive as much as 10 inches of snow, the National Weather Service reported.

Accuweather reported bands of light snow showers and flurries will drop smaller amounts of snow and a wintry mix through much of the Midwest, including Northern Michigan, the Ohio River Valley, Indiana, Kentucky and northern Tennessee Thursday.

People throughout the Great Plains, Midwest and New England began the cleanup process Wednesday, digging their homes and cars out of the snow dropped by a blizzard.

Some residents in Texas had to resort to unconventional tools to aid in the cleanup, CNN reported.

"The guy was shoveling next door for an older lady. I thought he had a real shovel," Plainview, Texas, resident Julie Swift said. "But he had a lid to a big plastic tub. That was funny."

Officials said at least seven people died in the storm and thousands were without power in Kansas City, Mo.

Air travel was slowed by the winter storm, with more than 100 delayed or canceled flights Wednesday in Chicago alone.

Flight-tracking website www.flightaware.com said approximately 500 U.S. flights were canceled Wednesday.
