14. Among those stranded in the area: US Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia

'(CNN)Drivers have been stranded for hours on Interstate 95 in eastern Virginia -- some from Monday into Tuesday morning -- because of a severe winter storm that has sent authorities scrambling to clear a path.

The vehicles were stuck on portions of a 50-mile stretch of I-95 in the Fredericksburg area, between Richmond and Washington, DC, partly because of disabled trucks blocking the way in snowy and icy conditions, the Virginia Department of Transportation said.
Among those stranded in the area: US Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia, who said he was still stuck in traffic at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday -- 19 hours after starting his drive. He did not specify what road he was on; many secondary roads in the region also were blocked by downed trees or wintry conditions, authorities said.

"I started my normal 2 hour drive to DC at 1pm yesterday. 19 hours later, I'm still not near the Capitol," Kaine tweeted, posting a picture from behind a windshield, showing three trucks ahead.
