The snow storm “Jonas” that hit the East Coast of the United States in January of 2016 has been so brutal that many people are calling it a “snowpocalypse.” The storm has been the cause of death for at least 19 people, as it blankets many areas with record-breaking levels of snow. Airlines have been forced to cancel flights, traffic is non-existent in some places due to the snow, and many businesses and schools are shut down across about a dozen U.S. states. The consequences of this terrible winter storm seem to be endless, and these pictures display what many people are going through right now – the good and the bad.
This is a picture of a bulldozer clearing the immense amount of snow away from the front of the U.S. Capitol building in Washington.
While the storm is mainly considered a snow storm, it has also caused many destructive floods. This picture was taken at a beach in Cape May.
