NEW YORK (AP) — A report from the CDC finds that weather kills at least 2,000 Americans each year.

Nearly two-thirds of the deaths are from the cold.

That may surprise some people, the researchers acknowledge.

One of the report's authors says hurricanes, tornadoes and heat waves "get more publicity, for some reason, than cold-related deaths."
