A fierce storm is bringing more snow to parts of the US north-east, with officials warning residents to be prepared for 3ft (1m) of new snow, reports BBC.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo called it a "historic event", while a local official dubbed the storm "gigantic".

Some places, including the city of Buffalo, are already underneath 5ft of snow with heavy disruption to travel, and eight people have died in New York state

Temperatures in all 50 U.S. states dipped to freezing or below on Tuesday as an unseasonably cold blast of weather moved across the country while heavy snow prompted a state of emergency in western New York and contributed to the deaths of four people, reports Reuters.

It was the coldest November morning across the country since 1976, according to Weather Bell Analytics, a meteorologist consulting firm. Typically, such cold is not seen until late December through February, the National Weather Service said.

The new storm blast spread across New York early on Thursday, bringing thunder, lightning and the spectre of several more feet of snow.
