Chicago's Lake Shore Drive at a virtual standstill.
A huge winter storm pummeled the United States delivering another wintry swipe to the midsection of the country and threatening further disruptions in the Northeast.
Chicago is experiencing its biggest snowfall in more than 40 years.
SOUNDBITE: Chicago resident, saying (English)
"Definitely with the winds and the snow it is probably the worst conditions that I have ever seen."
The huge two-day storm dropped as much as three inches of snow an hour in Chicago during most of the night with winds of up to 40 miles per hour.
As people struggle to cope with the blast, authorities are checking for stranded passengers.
Efforts are also underway to clear the massive snow drift.
On the North side of the city, all is quiet at Chicago's Wrigley Field, home of the baseball team the Chicago Cubs.
And while most citizens are staying indoors, others are finding new ways to travel as the snowstorm makes it way to the Northeast.
