A massive blizzard in North America which has been dubbed as “snowzilla” has dumped record amounts of snow in the eastern states, closing down cities such as New York and Washington D.C.


In photos taken by Clive Linssen, New York City has become a no man’s land due to the heavy snow storm.

New York’s iconic landmarks such as Central Park and Broadway were likewise enveloped with snow.


At least 15 people have been killed by the monster snow storm which hit states in the eastern side of the US. AJH
