TWO more raging snow storms are set to hit this week after Orlena left “four dead” and washed homes away.
Americans across the Midwest and Northeast can expect more snow towards the end of the week.
The news of additional snow comes are Winter Storm Olena halted Covid vaccinations in 20 states and sparked travel chaos across across the North East on Monday.
It also comes as some houses on the East Coast were washed away from high tides and coastal flooding.
According to Weather.com, Blizzard conditions are expected Thursday into Friday in parts of the upper Midwest and interior Northeast as the first storm makes way.
Over the weekend, East Coasters could also experience another snowstorm, however, meteorologists are not confident it could happen.
“An intensifying low-pressure system will spread snowfall from the Northern Plains and upper Midwest to the interior Northeast late this week,” Weather.com explains.
“Parts of the Midwest will see the greatest impact from this storm since the snow will be accompanied by strong winds.
A blizzard warning was issued by the National Weather Service for areas of northern and central Iowa late Thursday night.
Areas between Eastern Nebraska to Wisconsin and the northern parts of Michigan have had winter weather advisories and storm watches issues.
The storm system, on Friday, will then make its way into upstate New York and northern New England.
Meanwhile, forecasters are closely watching “an incoming southward plunge of the jet stream from the Midwest” and “a developing low-pressure system off the Southeast coast.”
An interaction between these two weather “ingredients” could lead to “a more significant East Coast storm with snow, rain and wind in portions of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast sometime Sunday into Monday,” according to the report.
Earlier this week, storm Orlena killed four people, including an elderly woman who froze to death.
The storm has canceled more than 2,000 flights, shut down Covid vaccine sites, and led to 660 vehicle crashes in New Jersey as snow and ice hit multiple states.
As the storm continued into Tuesday, officials warned the heaviest of the snow accumulation was still to come in some places, with two feet predicted in total.
Monday’s forecasters revealed 20 inches had fallen between eastern Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey – with the high reaching 30 inches in Mendham by 11pm EST.
According to WCVB, erosion in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, left a handful of homes severely damaged.
By Tuesday afternoon, one home fell onto the neighboring sand, the news outlet reported.
One nearby resident told WCVB: “It got undermined and the house is on a 45-degree angle. And it’s totally gone now.
“There’s no moving it now. It’s just wrecked. It’s just destroyed.”
On Monday, it was revealed Orlena had claimed its first victim – 67-year-old Patricia Becker – who reportedly wandered away from her home in Pennsylvania.
Becker, who has Alzheimer’s, was reported missing around 4am, which led to a massive search by Allentown police.
She was found lying in the snow just a few blocks away from her apartment building a few hours later and was pronounced dead from hypothermia around 9.40am.
