Deep freeze over US Midwest worsens, at least 5 dead

Jan 30, 2019 21:47 IST

The polar vortex that led to a deep freeze enveloping the US Midwest seems to be getting worse, forcing schools, offices and postal services to shut down. At least five people have reportedly to have been killed across several states as a direct result of the cold weather. The temperature in North Dakota dropped as low as -33°C. A state of emergency has been declared in Wisconsin, Michigan and Illinois, as well as in the southern states of Alabama and Mississippi.
