A harsh winter storm known as a 'bomb cyclone' has hit the East Coast
So bomb cyclone, yesterday almost all the east coast was under warning of cyclone. In florida also an dangerous cold weather experianced.
As the storm crawled up the East Coast, it experienced a rapid drop in pressure, and grew intense, quickly. The storm now resembles something like a hurricane: a cyclone spinning around a central eye.

New York was walloped, and can expect a freezing night:-
With 8 to 15 inches of snow already down in New York City and its suburbs, and another few inches still to come in eastern Long Island, the National Weather Service warned of continuing high winds and blowing snow through the night, followed by toe-numbing cold into the weekend. Mayor Bill de Blasio said that with the wind chill, it could feel like minus 20 degrees on Friday and Saturday nights.
On Thursday, Eric Taveras, 42, of the Bronx, stood outside the storied Plaza Hotel overlooking Central Park. Howling winds had already been blowing snow into his eyes.
“Once your feet get cold, your whole body is done,” said Mr. Taveras, who was among the workers facing the daunting task of shoveling the snow to keep people from slipping on the checkered floors outside the hotel.

CNN reports that 11 people have already died in the outbreak of winter cold throughout the country. So it’s important to stress: Winter weather is very, very dangerous. Cold temperatures and high winds are a recipe for frostbite and hypothermia. Hospitals routinely see an uptick in admissions for cold-related symptoms and heart problems in the days after a snowstorm. And then there’s traffic: About 800 people die in cold-weather related traffic accidents every year. So stay warm, off the roads, and safe.
