A massive winter storm battering North America has claimed more lives in New York state, local officials have confirmed.

Marc Poloncars, an official in Erie County, where Buffalo is located, confirmed 34 deaths on Wednesday. Local authorities are still trying to identify three victims.

The storm, which battered the United States over the past weekend, killed more than 60 people in eight US states.

“It is a terrifying storm that has left a very large number of deaths,” Boloncars said at a news conference on Wednesday morning. Despite this, conditions began to improve in the areas most affected by this climatic phenomenon.
