It has been very cold recently, with the temperatures in Hong Kong falling below 10 degrees. This led to many people going to hospitals because of hypothermia. In the US, the situation is worse. Earlier, the US East Coast was
hit by a blizzard called the ‘bomb cyclone’. Some places had 46cm of snowfall and a record-breaking temperature of minus-40 degrees Celsius. The blizzard caused 17 deaths and the loss of power in over 100,000 households. The snowstorm also led to chaos in air and ground traffi c, with 5,500 fl ights cancelled and tens of thousands of passengers stranded in airports. To reduce casualties, some areas declared a state of emergency andtemporarily closed down public schools.

炸彈氣旋
正確名稱是「驟強暴風雪」(Bombogenesis),指當一個地區在24小時內,風暴中心的氣壓急降,就會形成特別強烈的風雪。
