The snowstorm visited the state last month. It was quite unexpected as different balls of snow and stormy ice were hurled at the state. This, diminished the temperature of the state as it witnessed its highest freezing in over 50 years. It also disrupted the power supply in the state as the residents were advised to boil water, which over half of the state’s residents complied with. The catastrophic snowstorm, however, claimed over 70 lives.
