Try using the MENU button on your remote control to go into the TV picture settings menu. Change the mode to NATURAL, You can also try to manually adjust the color in the COLOR SETTINGS mode.

If that doesn't work, check out the handy troubleshooting chart in TV color problems and see if another solution will work. I hope this helps!

your convergence IC;s are out, they cost about $40, if you know how to solder, you can do it your self, if not , I would try to find somone that can, service centers charge about 4 or 5 hundred, after you get the new ones, there easy to find on the board in the back of the tv

Loss of electricity due to the ice storm...

if it worked before and not after i would claim it, also sometimes if you complain to the electric company they will foot the bill on there insurance. power surge can cause all sorts of problems . just my 2 cents.
now this set is also know to have bad convergance ic
check this site out for repairing it.

By manual convergence, if you mean electrostatic convergence, then I'm not sure this is included in the service manual. However, if you join the group, there is a file download called ws500tweaks.doc that documents this (with the usual caveats, like don't get yourself killed, when in doubt hire a pro, etc).
