    A snowstorm raged in the states of Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, as over around two feet of snow hit parts of the United States' Midwest. Even though the storm has ended, weather warnings remain in place for parts of the southern Plains.

    Thousands of residents in Ohio and Pennsylvania faced massive power outages caused by a heavy snowstorm that hit parts of the Midwest, with over 50,000 residents between the two states without power, according to AccuWeather.

    Outages in Pennsylvania and West Virginia were reported to be much smaller than those in Ohio, according to Fox News. In the Buckeye State, around 16,000 customers were left without power, poweroutage.us showed.

    The first lake-effect snowstorm of the season resulted in a large two-foot layer of snow covering some Midwest regions, leaving multiple interstates closed.

    Footage of the snowstorm and its aftermath was shared in social media.

    The ​National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning and winter weather advisories for parts of Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
