Heavy snow that snarled travel plans for millions of Americans left more than 344,000 homes and businesses without power on Thanksgiving morning, NBC News reported. Power outages were reported from West Virginia to Vermont early Thursday — including 112,000 customers in Maine, 28,000 in Massachusetts and 140,000 in New Hampshire at 1 p.m. ET. More than 490 flights were canceled and more than 800 delayed across the country at 2:30 p.m. There were also 125 reported accidents on snow-slicked roads in New Jersey as winter weather made a mess of travel plans ahead of the holiday Wednesday.

Mercy Paul, 18, who is now living a new life at a boarding school in Canyonville, Oregon, said the militants warned the girls that trying to escape could cost them their lives. "There was no way for us to run away," Paul said. "They told us they would kill us." Paul also said that while she loves and misses her friends still being held, her religion compels her to ask for mercy for the men who are holding them captive. "I pray that they find that god is forgiving and merciful and that they stop doing what it is that they're doing," Paul said. Read »
