The Nor'easter has been bringing non-stop winds and snow to the eastern part of U.S. 31 million has been stuck because of the blizzard warning and it will likely to continue as per the U.S. snowstorm update.

Thousands of schools and other establishments have closed due to the U.S. snowstorm. This is the first time in a long time that the north-eastern part of the United States is experiencing this kind of snow blizzard. The latest U.S. snowstorm update is still somehow the same, just adding more states to the affected area of the Nor'easter, Fox8 reported. Moreover, there have been 8,800 U.S. flights canceled just from Monday to Wednesday.

This is probably a historic snow storm or blizzard as most of the North-eastern part of the U.S., except New York City and Philadelphia, are affected. Many blizzard warnings have been announced. The U.S. snowstorm update has reached West Virginia until Maine. Authorities have warned the people to not travel if they can. The winds are really strong as it will hit 50 mph to 60 mph. There will be zero visibility for that type of strong winds.

So far, there has been a record of four deaths due to the weather, stated CNN. Also, in Connecticut, local authorities have restricted their citizens to go to the highway and travel for several hours. Additionally, major regional rail traffic has been suspended. In upstate New York, 30 inches of snow has been recorded. Meanwhile in some parts of Connecticut, Maine, Vermont and Massachusetts, there has been a 20-inch snow, according to the National Weather Service and U.S. snowstorm update.

"Areas along the coast from New York to Boston didn't see as much as expected," said Taylor Ward, a CNN meteorologist. "But some portions of the Northeast have seen more than 30 inches of snow," he added. People are hoping everything will slow down tomorrow. However, blizzard warnings are still the same, said the latest U.S. snowstorm update.
