A major winter storm moved out of the Midwest and into the Southeast on January 7, 1988. The storm brought a considerable amount of snow to the interior portion of the Carolinas. The storm in the southeastern U.S. produced 27 inches of snow in the Bad Creek area of South Carolina, and claimed the lives of two million chickens in Alabama. Across North Carolina over a foot of snow fell across the North Carolina mountains. Coastal areas started with snow but areas east of Highway 17 changed to freezing rain and rain before the storm ended. However, snow remained on the ground for several days in much interior Eastern North Carolina.
