(NEW YORK) — Freezing weather, ice and snow are causing dangerous travel, power outages and at least 10 deaths over the last two weeks.

Some parts of the country are not used to this kind of wintry weather so early in December. Among other events impacted by the cold is the Dallas Marathon, which had been scheduled for Sunday. The race was cancelled on Friday.

Among those killed by the uncommonly cold weather were four homeless people in the San Francisco Bay Area who died of hypothermia, two people killed in traffic accidents in Indiana, two more killed on the roads in Texas, a young Oklahoma boy killed in a car crash and one person killed in Pope County, Arkansas when a tree fell on their camper.
