A storm system that spawned tornadoes in Louisiana is now creating a wintry mess in several Northeastern states.
About 30 inches of snow have fallen in Vermont. In Buffalo, New York, the system pushed seasonal snow total past 100 inches.
The winter weather has led to ice-covered highways, causing chaos for many commuters.
"We had almost a tropical air mass across southern New England that was trying to push north at the same time a polar air mass was trying to push south," National Weather Service meteorologist Brooke Taber said.
"It was that battleground that created this intense snowfall," Taber added.
The same storm caused heavy rain in parts of Connecticut, New York, New Jersey Massachusetts and Virginia.
Currently, 36 counties in the region are under flood warnings.
Forecasters predict more rain and snow for the region on Thursday.
