People Have Died Because Of The Freezing Winter Storm
A deadly winter storm has bedeviled much of the country. In Buffalo, New York, the hardest hit city is faced with restoring power, checking homes and cars with expectations that more residents will be found dead.
At least 27 people have been found dead as a result of the storm. In New York’s Erie County, Buffalo was buried by up to 43 inches of snow.
When the arctic blast smacked the holiday weekend, nearly 2,700 flights were canceled. Of those, 2,500 are operated by Southwestern Airlines.
Indeed, in Buffalo, blizzard conditions were recorded for 37 straight hours. Even emergency and recovery vehicles were stuck in the snow and rescuers were rescuing the rescuers. Hundreds of vehicles were abandoned in the snow in Buffalo.
According to the records, there were 420 EMS calls that went unanswered and the death toll will be going up.
President Biden has already approved an emergency declaration for New York, freeing up federal resources to assist in the disaster-hit area.
At least 49 storm-related deaths have been recorded across several states including Colorado, Kansas, Ohio and Missouri.
To be honest, the changes caused by the warming of the global climate have brought extremely hot and cold weather to human beings which is now one of the major challenges that we are facing today.
The year of 2022 is coming to an end. Looking back over the last three years, we all have been crippled with Covid-19, the Ukraine war and inflation. We deeply understand that only by being united can we overcome these difficulties. Otherwise, natural and man-made disasters are inevitable.
