The eastern United States and Canada are shivering under record-breaking low temperatures following as Arctic blasts followed a deadly winter storm.

In Canada, temperatures approaching minus 50 degrees Celsius were forecast in northern Ontario and Quebec. Authorities warned Arctic air and dangerously cold wind chills could bring temperatures to as low as minus 45 Fahrenheit across the United States.

Media report said, the deep freeze follows a winter storm which has been dubbed a “bomb cyclone” by forecasters, and is blamed for at least 19 deaths in the US. Over 3,420 flights within, into or out of US were delayed with New York’s John F Kennedy airport and South Carolina’s Charleston among the most affected.

In eastern Canada, which has suffered through extreme cold for two weeks, there were further flight delays and cancellations at Toronto airport, and some communities along the Quebec coast faced flooding. The US National Weather Service has warned that below normal temperatures are likely to continue into early next week.
