February 20 According to U.S. media statistics, since the 14th local time, two winter storms have killed at least 47 people in the United States and plunged most parts of the United States into severe cold.
As the cold weather continues, the death toll is expected to rise in the next few days.
According to the Washington Post on the 19th, people died in cold weather from southern Texas to northern Ohio in the United States.
Most of the 47 dead have not been identified, but the authorities confirmed that at least 18 are over 50 years old and 5 over 85 years old.
The real death toll is believed to be higher than it is now.
Sheriff Rich Bishop of Taylor County, Texas, said his police officers had inspected the residents for several days, sent them food and water, and then continued to follow up to ensure that everything was fine.
At present, three people have been found dead in the local area. “In the next one to two weeks, we’re definitely likely to find more things that we don’t know yet,” Bishop said.
