The devastating winter storm that has blanketed most of the United States in snow and ice will last throughout the week, causing holiday visitors to face canceled flights and treacherous roadways.

The death toll is also climbing, with 34 people killed as a result of the weather on Monday morning.

According to the Associated Press, the enormous storm is predicted to kill additional people after locking some inhabitants inside their homes and cutting out electricity to tens of thousands of homes and businesses.

The severe weather affected a large portion of the country – from the Great Lakes near Canada to the Rio Grande around Mexico's border.

Around 60% of the U.S. population was subjected to some form of winter weather advisory or warning, as temperatures plunged well below average from east of the Rocky Mountains to the Appalachians, as per the AP’s report.

According to the National Weather Service (NWS), the chilly arctic air “enveloping much of the eastern half of the U.S. will be slow to moderate.”

According to flight tracking website, the “bomb cyclone” storm, one of the worst in decades, prompted the cancellation of more than 1,500 US flights on Sunday, on top of the 3,500 canceled on Saturday and almost 6,000 on Friday.

Over 1,000 US flights had already been canceled just hours into Monday, according to the website.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg posted a tweet on Saturday, saying: “the most extreme disruptions are behind us as airline and airport operations gradually recover.”
