People have died while trapped in their cars as the toll grows from the deep freeze gripping the United States.
There have been at least 30 fatalities across several states, including deadly accidents on icy roads.
Officials have warned that the death count could rise with motorists trapped in their vehicles in and around Buffalo in New York state.
Twelve have died in the state — one of the worst-hit regions — and in Buffalo, people have been confined to their homes for several days.
