On the East Coast of the United States, more than 30 people lost their lives. In total, more than 200,000 homes have no electricity, no heating, with extreme temperatures. Americans sometimes live stuck at home due to snow and share videos on social media.
Canada is also hit by this polar storm. Le 13h de TF1 was able to reach Leo this morning, a student in Montreal. Even in this country accustomed to extreme temperatures, he fears the worst. “The walls are very poorly insulated, you quickly feel the heat or the cold, because there is no double glazing.” According to meteorologists, this storm should calm down from Wednesday.
