As the winter storm continues, the death toll in the United States rises.

According to local officials, a powerful winter storm that slammed North America has claimed more lives in the US state of New York.

According to county executive Mark Poloncarz, at least 34 people have died in Erie County, which includes the city of Buffalo.

Authorities are still looking for three of the victims.

The storm that swept across the United States over the holiday weekend killed at least 60 people in eight different states.

More people have died in Erie County in the last few days than in the infamous Buffalo blizzard of 1977. According to the National Weather Service, 29 people were killed in the storm.

“It’s a terrible storm with far too many deaths,” Mr Poloncarz said at a press conference on Wednesday.

However, conditions in some of the worst-affected areas of the United States, including New York, are beginning to improve.

Mr Poloncarz stated that less than 1,000 households in Erie County are currently without power, and that 95% of residents should have power restored by the end of the day.
