A week after the snow storm, the north eastern region of the United States was again hit by a huge winter storm last Monday.

In Chicago, the storm left more than a foot of snow while from New York City to Boston, the early morning commuters experienced the freezing rain, gusty winds and snow.

Meteorologists described the last 7 days as Boston’s snowiest and have made winter weather history.

The annual Super Bowl party plans in Chicago are also threatened by the blizzard with millions in the Midwest may be forced to cancel their social events.

According to the National Weather Service, the residents of Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island and northern Connecticut have to be prepared to expect “dangerous wind chills” and “as much as a foot of fresh snow” in the days to come.

Due to the weather condition, hundreds of flights were either cancelled or delayed at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, Boston Logan International Airport and New York’s LaGuardia Airport.

In Canada, the winter storm has continued to hit Toronto, Niagara, Hamilton, York, Durham, Halton and Peel.  Strong north easterly winds with 15 and 20 cm of snow have been predicted to fall in the Southern Ontario area.

The storm has caused hazards, delays and closures of roads due to the snow that blanketed most of Eastern Canada.  Flights have been cancelled at the Pearson International Airport.

Residents in the Niagara regions were advised to prepare for emergencies due to the extreme cold weather.
