Destruction due to Arctic blast

The people of North America were hit by a winter storm as the death toll in US blizzard incidents reached 62, according to BBC. According to the Associated Press, the blizzard has killed 28 people in Buffalo, New York, and has left thousands without power.

According to a state official in Buffalo, military police have been asked to assist in traffic management in the city, and driving remains prohibited in areas of Northern America where the US blizzard has struck. During this harsh winter storm, the rescue team has been checking every car that has become stuck in snowbanks for survivors. According to the New York official, they sometimes find bodies in the cars.

On Tuesday, massive waves, high tides, and strong winds battered western Oregon and Washington, resulting in fatal crashes, power outages, and flooded homes.

National Weather Service issued a winter storm watch

The Great Plains of the United States experienced a destructive snowstorm just hours after four tornadoes touched down in Oklahoma, Texas, and Louisiana. Several roads in Colorado's northeast were closed as a consequence of the massive winter storm.

As the snowstorm continues, trucks are lining up on the roads. The National Weather Service issued a winter storm watch from Wednesday night to Friday afternoon, warning people to be on the lookout for a significant mix of snow, ice, and sleet.
