The polar vortex that continues to cover much of the Midwest Thursday in a deep freeze is blamed for at least eight deaths so far. The deaths included an elderly Illinois man found several hours after falling while entering his home, a University of Iowa student found behind an academic hall before dawn, and a Milwaukee man who froze to death in a garage, according to authorities. Automobile or snowplow accidents killed at least three others.
