<p>Heavy snow in upstate New York prompted a state of emergency in some western regions.</p> <p>The city of Buffalo was expecting 1.5 metres of snow to have fallen during this unusually cold snap.</p> <p>Temperatures in all fifty US states dipped below freezing as an cold blast of weather moved across the country, including Hawaii.</p> <p>The national guard was called in to help with the blizzard conditions. </p> <p>Many drivers were stranded with nowhere to go.</p> <p>Others tried desperately to shovel their cars out of the snow. Rescuers delivered blankets to drivers stranded in some of the coldest temperatures since the 1970s.</p> <p>Many abandoned their cars and started walking, as bans on driving were implemented in some places.</p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/289038/606x747_1911-usa-snowstorm2.jpg"></p>
