    At least 16 people have been killed, as heavy snow and freezing temperatures struck cities across the eastern United States.

    The year's first major winter storm brought large-scale disruptions to several cities.

    Four thousand flights have been delayed or cancelled, and the governors of New York and New Jersey have called a state of emergency to finance the clearing of major highways.
