Experts warn that the freezing temperatures wreaking havoc across the US and Canada can lead to frostbite on uncovered areas of skin in just five to 10 minutes.

A powerful Arctic winter storm led to more than 135 million people warning of severe weather at the weekend ahead of the busiest travel period of the year.

The warnings extend from the east coast to the west coast and reach as far south as the US-Mexico and Florida borders.

Major airports canceled thousands of flights as the storm intensified.
