Background: Fierce weather storms have left a trail of damage from the Mid-Western United States to the Atlantic coast paralysing parts of Western New York State and the neighbouring Canadian state of Ontario.
Blizzards brought chaos to traffic in Syracuse. How York State with all roads in the three westernmost counties blocked at times by deep and drifting snow.
The neighbouring Canadian State, Ontario fared no better. A blizzard closed many major highways and left more than 12.000 school-children stranded in rural school buildings and nearby farmhouses.
New York City itself was badly hit. Quite a large number of New Yorkers had to rely on their clothes only for warmth as some of the city's power-generator's were brought to a standstill by the severe cold.
