Caption: Ice storm phenomenon. Roadside rubbish covered in ice after an ice storm in Columbia, South Carolina. An ice storm occurs when rain falls onto objects, such as trees and power cables, that have a temperature of below freezing, causing the rain to turn to ice. The layers of ice can build up until the weight of the ice causes the object to collapse. The ice storm, which occurred in January 2004, had such a crippling effect that 17 counties in South Carolina were given government money to help them recover.
