Historic Blizzard Stretches from Mexico to Canada

By Ai Lung Nguyen - February 2011.

ENVIRONMENT - The biggest blizzard in decades is heading north towards Toronto and is currently so big that it stretches from Mexico to Canada. Many regions of the United States have been hit hard by the historic blizzard which has already killed over 30 people in 20 states.

The eye of the blizzard is expected to reach Toronto on Wednesday night, but for now it is passing through central American states and covering all it passes over with 30 to 90 cm (1 to 3 feet) of snow.

As global warming gets worse we can expect to see more blizzards like this in the future, the result of the flip side of climate change: Erratic weather. The greater the temperature change, the stronger the extremes of weather we will see.

UPDATE: By the time it reached Toronto this blizzard was pretty calm by Canadian standards. America was much harder hit in states not used to blizzard conditions.
