A massive snowstorm has wreaked havoc in much of the United States, bringing record low temperatures and leaving at least seven people dead.
About half of the country had snow on the ground Tuesday, with temperatures falling to freezing in all 50 states, including Hawaii, according to the National Weather Service.
The National Weather Service said some places could top the record for a single-day of snowfall, which is 6ft 4ins (1.93m).
Residents in some states were reported trapped in their homes and cars, and strong winds and icy roads caused motorway accidents and forced school closures in parts of the US.
The storm has paralyzed upstate New York, including the city of Buffalo, where 5 fatalities were reported. Two deaths were reported in New Hampshire and Michigan.
There have been about 20 weather-related deaths across the US since Saturday.
Another blast of cold air will hammer the Midwest and Northeast, while the Southeast could see record lows as temperatures drop far below freezing.
