A significant winter storm has brought heavy snowfall and howling winds to parts of the northern United States, where authorities have urged citizens to remain indoors and warned that it will be practically difficult to travel by road due to the storm.

When the storm moved across the western and northern parts of the United States on Wednesday, it pounded the Upper Midwest and placed approximately 50 million people under winter weather advisories. As the storm moved eastward, it began to affect the states in the eastern part of the country.

Travel is not advised in the Upper Midwest due to blizzard conditions:

“Moderate, Significant, and Severe winter weather impacts are predicted from the West Coast to New England,” the National Weather Service (NWS) warned through Twitter on Tuesday. “Travel is not advised in the Upper Midwest due to blizzard conditions,” the NWS had added.,


The impact was widespread across the western state of Wyoming, where practically every route was affected.

In a statement made on Facebook, the Wyoming Department of Transportation warned that there is a good chance that interstates and secondary highways across the state may be closed for multiple days.


On Wednesday, schools in a number of states, including North and South Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, were shut down in preparation for the storm. Also, snow, rain, and wind forced the closure of a significant portion of the interstate highway in the Southwest.

Sometimes it is physically impossible to keep up with Mother Nature:

According to statements made by Sergeant Wade Kadrmas of the North Dakota Highway Patrol to the Associated Press, “Sometimes it is physically impossible to keep up with Mother Natureā€.

He advised individuals who go out to make sure they were suitably dressed. “They don’t have a winter jacket,” is a common complaint heard from stranded motorists. They might be walking around in shorts and flip-flops, certain that they will make it from point A to point B without anything going wrong, he said.

In places such as Chicago, Denver, and Minneapolis, more than two thousand flights were either canceled or delayed. Frank Pereira, a forecaster with the meteorological service’s Weather Prediction Center, told Reuters that slippery roads would make travel “near-impossible” in the Upper Midwest.

Prepare yourself with the necessary supplies!”
