A powerful blast of Arctic air that hit the U.S. and Canada over the Christmas holiday killed at least 38 people.
According to a report by the BBC, the blast hit New York's Buffalo hard. In total, 34 deaths were reported in the US. Four others were reported in Canada. A bus carrying passengers overturned on an icy road in British Columbia.
Some of the deaths were reported in Missouri, Kansas, Ohio, and Vermont.
In Buffalo, videos of homes with frost-covered exteriors went viral over the Christmas holiday. According to AccuWeather, the storm is expected to ease in the coming days.
According to Kathy Hochul, the Democratic governor of New York, the storm that hit Buffalo will be remembered as the most devastating one the area has experienced.
The storm left around 1.7 million people without power at its peak. Thousands of flights were also cancelled during the holiday season. In Florida, some iguanas were reportedly killed by the freezing temperatures.
The extreme weather was caused by a "bomb cyclone," which was moving toward the East Coast from the Pacific Northwest.
