The US East Coast is being battered by the first major blizzard to hit the region in four years.
According to the BBC, some areas are being “clobbered” by heavy snow and hurricane-force winds, and five states declared emergencies ahead of the storm’s arrival.
Experts warn of “historic” snowfall in some places and flood warnings have been issued near the coast.
More than 80,000 households across Massachusetts were suffering power outages by this morning.
Forecasters say there is a chance the storm, known as a Nor’easter, will blanket the Boston area with up to 61cm of snow, and up to 30cm of snow has already fallen in parts of New York.
