That’s a lot of snow.

If you’re one of the unlucky people that planned on travelling to the East Coast of the USA then you’ll know that the entire region – from Georgia to New York – has been covered in a thick blanket of snow.

The region is in the grips of an enormous blizzard, with an historic 20 to 30 inches of snow predicted to fall.

Coastal flooding and crippling travel disruptions are widely expected in the area, and the storm is clearly visible from space.

Astronaut Scott Kelly, currently aboard the International Space Station, tweeted three images of the storm in its various stages from his window on Saturday morning.

Here’s an idea of its impact and reach.
