(CNN) — After freezing rain and snow glazed roads across the Northeast, leaving five dead, more misery awaits Monday.

Winter storm warnings are in effect through the morning for upstate Vermont and portions of New Hampshire, Maine and western Massachusetts.

In Vermont, there could be between 3 and 7 inches of snow and 10 inches in the state’s highest elevations.

Ice storms hit Connecticut, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania over the weekend, prompting the mayor of Danbury, Connecticut, to hashtag them #Icezilla.

“Still slippery, but calls are slowing down in our 911 center. #Danbury #Icezilla,” Boughton tweeted.

Pennsylvania deaths

A messy mix of ice and rain left bridges, overpasses and interstates coated with ice Sunday. Two people died in accidents related to black ice in the Philadelphia area, state police said.

In one of the accidents, one person was killed after getting out of a car and being hit by an oncoming vehicle , authorities said. The person got out of the car after crashing into at least 20 vehicles piled up on Interstate 76.

An additional two people were killed in a multicar crash in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, CNN affiliate KYW reported. The three cars rammed into a tractor-trailer and got stuck underneath, it said.

Maryland deaths

At least one person has died in Harford County, Maryland, State Police spokesman Greg Shipley said.

There were dozens of crashes throughout central and northern Maryland on Sunday. Most of them occurred in Howard, Baltimore, Harford and Cecil counties.
