The Buffalo area was particularly affected, as severe weather hampered rescue efforts

The deaths of at least 38 people have been linked to the severe freezing caused by polar winds in the blizzard that struck the United States and Canada.

Officials say 34 people have died across the United States, with the worst-hit area being Buffalo in New York state.

Four deaths occurred in Canada when a bus overturned on an icy road near the town of Merritt in western British Columbia.

The storm caused chaos for several days, but power steadily returned after an earlier blackout.
