People in the United States hunkered down in deep freeze early morning and overnight. The frigid storm killed at least 24 people across the U.S. The snow drifts trapped inside residential homes, knocking out power to several hundred thousand homes and businesses. The storm has been unprecedented from the Great Lakes near Canada to Rio along the border of Mexico. 

Moreover, 60% of the U.S. population faced weather advisories, and temperatures plummeted below normal from east of the Rocky Mountains to the Appalachians. Early Sunday, 1346 domestic and international flights were cancelled due to the worst weather.

Atmospheric pressure drops quickly in a strong storm near the Great Lakes, stirring up blizzard conditions, including heavy winds and snow. According to the officials, Kathy Hochul said a fire truck in the city was stranded and shunting down the airport. On Friday, two people died in Suburban Cheektowaga, New York. More deaths were confirmed overnight, bringing the Erie County total to seven.

The city streets were under a thick white blanket covered with snow, and there was no option for people like Jeremy Manahan to charge his phone in his parked car for almost 29 hours without electricity. Manahan said, 'one warming shelter would be too far for me to get to, and I can't drive because I'm stuck.'
