Extremism of US Winter Storm
Winter storm in the US is the worst of their kind and is making life miserable there. Vehicles are stranded on the road as piles of snow make it difficult for commuters to drive on the snowy and slippery roads. Cars and houses are covered with snow, and the temperature dip to record minus. The emergency response service is paralyzed and difficulties are irresistible.
The storm has knocked out the electric power supply of thousands of houses leaving people in the dark and cold inside the frozen houses. Chilled wind from the Arctic region covering nearly half of the Northern US will fade away in a considerable amount of time but not now said the National Weather Service.
The National Weather Service has already surfaced the warning that an even more drastic situation could evolve because 9 more inches of snow could fall in some western parts of New York. As of now, more than 3000 flights were canceled on Monday. Prior to the day before Sunday on the occasion of Christmas eve, hundreds of passengers were stranded at Airport lounges.
US Winter Storm- The repercussion of Climate Change
The impactful situation in the US is the present scenario but the severity of the climate crisis is increasing day by day across the World. Either the dramatic shifting of the rain pattern or its altered intensity or the frequent occurrence of drought or it is wildfire, every natural phenomenon is more frequently disastrous these days.
Scientists have linked the US Storm crisis to the ongoing climate change. Extreme chilled frozen air is flowing over the warm lake, a report suggests. The Buffalo City of Western New York is severely affected by the Blizzard. The effect of the Arctic Blast and Snow Storm has paralyzed much of the US.
In the US the problem is not the availability of resources and emergency response mechanisms, it is the severity of the condition and deadly storm which affected the response management, Gov. Kathy Hochul said. He said the History of the deadly storm is not History now, we are witnessing it right now.
