Millions of commuters across the eastern US battled disrupted transport systems struggling to recover from a huge blizzard. Slippery pavements, crippled train networks, treacherous roads and cancelled flights were among the problems workers faced on Monday. The US government in Washington, as well as many schools and businesses throughout the region, are shut. As the clean up begins, at least 36 people have been left dead.

  • In New York, the storm was the second-biggest on record
  • In Washington and Philadelphia, it was the fourth biggest
