Severe Winter Storm Affects The United States, Canada


In various states, more than 650,000 people are without electricity as a severe Arctic winter storm moves through the US and Canada.

Damage-causing winds and frosty temperatures brought on by the storm can cause frostbite very quickly.

Winter weather warnings are in effect for a large portion of Canada and the US, and they extend from coast to coast and as far south as the US-Mexico border.

As the storm worsens, major airports have canceled thousands of flights.

Numerous individuals were still without power as of Friday morning from Texas to Maine due to the strong winds that tore down power lines in the eastern US.

More than 100,000 people are without power in Georgia, where there’s a state of emergency, making it the worst-affected state.

Canada’s provinces of Quebec and Ontario were coping with winter storm conditions that left more than 160,000 households without power on Friday.

United States President Joe Biden warned his fellow citizens to take the storm seriously.

“This is not like a snow day, you know, like when you were a kid. This is serious stuff,” Biden declared.
