Extreme winter in the USA: thousands of flights canceled due to anomalous frosts

As a result of the abnormally cold weather that covered the Midwest USA, on January 30, more than a thousand airports in Chicago, Illinois, were canceled — employees simply risk frostbite, CNN reports.


Thus, from January 29 to January 31, about 80% of the 600 scheduled flights of United Continental were canceled at O'Hare airport, and more than 700 and 225 flights of Southwest Airlines and American Airlines were canceled at Midway Airport.

Meteorologists call the extreme cold that came to the city a record — the temperature dropped to -45 degrees. Experts call this the effects of the arctic cyclone.

Such low temperatures will cause frostbite on exposed skin within five minutes, warned the US National Weather Service.








For this reason, broke the record and the price of natural gas, which in Chicago is sold at 7.42 dollars per 1 million British thermal units, which has not happened since last January.

In many cities in the north of the United States are closed schools, institutions, museums. Public transport works with difficulty. In addition, due to icing on the roads in some states, there were no casualties.


Recall that in addition to temperature record breaks, winter brought with it heavy snowfalls — in some places in the States it was up to half a meter of snow. Because of the cold even freeze the entrance doors of houses.

As we have already written, at least six people have become victims of the weather in the United States. In addition, as a result of the winter weather, 200 thousand people in Virginia and North Carolina were left without electricity.

In turn, US President Donald Trump called this weather proof of the absence of global warming.
