Monster winter storm claimed lives in the United States

In large parts of the USA, people experience Christmas in exceptionally cold weather. Extreme sub-zero temperatures, icy winds and heavy snowfalls have led to power outages in many places – and have already claimed several lives.

According to the website PowerOutage, more than 1.6 million homes were temporarily without power on Saturday, most of them on the east coast of the United States. In some parts of the country up to minus 40 degrees were measured.

On Christmas Eve, the US weather service wrote on Twitter that “Santa” – Father Christmas – would be confronted with freezing temperatures, especially in the eastern two-thirds of the country. “Luckily he comes from the North Pole and is used to this weather,” the Christmas message continued. In the southwest and on the west coast, however, he will experience slightly warmer temperatures.
