Six dead as severe winter storm hits US East Coast

A jogger is bundled up against the cold near the Chicago River on Thursday January 4 in Chicago. Blasts of arctic air have brought weather-related deaths record low temperatures and historic amounts of snowfall to parts of the United States

From New England to OH, weather warnings have been issued including for Pennsylvania, while the National Weather Service warned of freezing rain in Missouri and areas to the northeast.

The storm dumped more than a foot of snow across much of the Northeast, and forecasters are calling for a record-breaking cold spell in the days ahead, which could slow the process of digging out in some areas.

Winds chills will be well below zero this weekend, with some areas feeling like it is minus 40.

"In this case, with a nor'easter, the cold air from Canada combined with the warmer ocean waters of the gulf stream is what will trigger this explosive strengthening pattern".

Wind chill is calculated by the rate the body loses heat due to speed winds and cold temperatures. Or as meteorologists say, it's the "feels-like" temperature.

In Hartford, Connecticut, a brutal cold of minus 12C (10F) yielded a wind chill of minus 28C (minus 20F).

And when the wind chill registers below minus 50, it would take only five minutes for exposed skin to develop frostbite. Two people died of cardiac arrest during the storm Thursday on New York's Long Island, officials said.

The cold and snowy weather was blamed for at least 18 deaths in the past few days, including four in North Carolina traffic accidents and three in Texas.

Many areas along the coast got more than a foot of snow, the Washington Post reported.

Outside Boston, Massachusetts, a state Water Resources Authority worker collapsed into a snowbank while shoveling snow and died on Friday.

In Virginia, two died in the aftermath of a snowstorm this week, including a girl struck by a pickup truck while sledding and a 75-year-old man hit by a snow-plow while clearing the business parking lots, said local authorities. A Meals on Wheels driver found his body lying in front of his wheelchair on the porch of the man's home. Four people were reported killed in the southeastern states of North and SC, where icy roads sent vehicles skittering. "The sustained cold is requiring round-the-clock usage of some of these oil-fired generators, and some are already running short on fuel", an ISO New England spokesperson told the Times.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration confirmed Friday that water levels in Boston broke the record set during a massive blizzard in 1978. Waves from the sea washed into Boston streets. First responders braved the frigid waters using rubber rescue boats and high-water vehicles.
