Nearly the entirety of the United States is currently dealing with one of the most intense winter weather events in modern history, and it is wreaking havoc on the holiday travel season.

A “bomb cyclone” is forming in parts of the country on Thursday night, with temperatures around the nation plummeting in the wee hours, making for treacherous travel and stranding an extraordinary number of Christmas travelers from coast to coast.

At least five people have been killed as a treacherous ‘once-in-a-generation’ winter system pummels central and eastern parts of the United States – with at least six governors calling for a state of emergency.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul declared a state of emergency and issued a traffic ban on part of Interstate 90 beginning on Friday at 6 am due to the incoming storm’s expected brutality.

The trouble was widespread.

Social media users were taking to Twitter to share their stunning experiences.

Stay warm, folks…this could be a wild one.
