Natural Disasters - Blizzards and Snowstorms
A Blizzard is a violent snowstorm.
Weather forecasters classify a Blizzard when:
A result of a blizzard is reduced visibility, therefore can cause car crashes, hypothermia, and disruptions to transportation and power distribution systems.
An extreme form of a blizzard is a white-out which makes it impossible to distinguish the difference between the ground and the air. People can easily become lost in these circumstances.
Blizzards are common in north-eastern United States and upper Midwest.
