 The high winds and heavy snow and ice have disrupted the flights and also closed major roads across the middle of US.  The cities are preparing for worst of the storm to come.

The winds, snow and ice and plunging temperatures swept across a swath of US, leaving at least 18 dead and upending holiday plans during one of the busiest weeks for travel. More than 80,000 customers in the Texas are currently living without power. Tens of thousands of customers across Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Arkansas,  and Tennessee have also lost power.

The  single-digit temperatures and da -old power outages sent Buffalo residents scrambling Saturday to get out of their houses to anywhere that had heat. New York Government  Kathy Hochul said that Buffalo Niagara International Airport will be closed through Monday morning and almost every fire truck in Buffalo was stranded in snow.

 The forecasters revealed a bomb cyclone – when atmospheric pressure drops very quickly in a strong storm – had developed near the Great Lakes, stirring up blizzard conditions, including heavy snow and rains.
