The blizzard hit the east coast of the United States, affecting millions of Americans this Monday (17).
All cities are white. From above, where the blizzard has already passed, the view is quiet. But the situation of those who went on the road in the middle of the storm was completely different. A lorry overturned off the road (Watch the video above).
In North Carolina, two people were killed in another car crash. On Sunday (16) alone there were more than 600 people.
The blizzard intensified 50 million Americans. More than 1,600 flights across the country were canceled, including flights scheduled to depart from Brazil to the United States on Sunday night (16). This Monday morning, the airport in Charlotte, North Carolina was empty.
In New York, snow that had stopped falling during the day returned Monday evening. It rained in many parts of the United States. When it rains, the temperature can be very low and the water can freeze and damage the power cables. That’s what happened in South Carolina. There and in ten states, 200,000 people are still without electricity.
Where the storm has passed, people are now working with the help of machines so that everything will return to normal as soon as possible.
The Met Office has forecast heavy snowfall this week and flooding along the coast.
