Winter is wreaking havoc on numerous regions of the globe, shattering existing records and creating new ones. Every corner of the northern hemisphere is shivering right now due to an unexpected drop in temperature, from parts of India to the United States.
Take a look at some videos going viral on social media:
Over the Christmas weekend, western New York was paralysed by a brutal storm, dubbed the "blizzard of the century". So far, the storm has killed 27 people in New York and at least 60 people throughout the US.
Automobiles, buses, ambulances, tow trucks, and even ploughs were buried under the snow on roads, hindering efforts to reach trapped citizens in need of medical attention. Many flights were also cancelled.
