Millions of Americans suffer as a monster winter storm blankets areas of the east with heavy snow and bitter cold. The death toll from the snowstorm has now surpassed 46, according to an AFP report. In western New York, the city of Buffalo is marooned due to a blizzard, and emergency personnel are unable to reach high-impact areas. New York Governor Andrew Hochul stated, “It’s like entering a battle zone.”

Under its most recent statement, the NWS stated that “most of the eastern United States will continue in a deep freeze through Monday before a softening trend kicks in on Tuesday.” The snowstorm, according to Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz, could be “the worst storm in our community’s history,” as the National Weather Service reported that over 28 inches of snow were observed at Buffalo Airport. On Saturday evening and into Sunday, further snow is anticipated to fall.

On Christmas morning, more than 200,000 people in various eastern states awoke without electricity, and many more had their travel plans for the holiday disrupted, even though the five-day storm that brought blizzard conditions and fierce winds was beginning to abate. The weekend’s severe weather left homeowners in homes covered in ice and snow and stranded holiday visitors with thousands of flights cancelled. It also dropped wind chill readings below freezing in all 48 contiguous US states.On Christmas morning, more than 200,000 people in various eastern states awoke without electricity, and many more had their travel plans for the holiday disrupted, even though the five-day storm that brought blizzard conditions and fierce winds was beginning to abate.
