Dozens of Americans have died as a winter storm brought frigid temperatures and crippling snowfall across the United States, and officials in the Buffalo area believe the staggering toll will continue to grow there as teams continue to search and rescue missions.

The nationwide death toll from the storm, which brought more than 40 inches of snow to some areas, rose to 49 on Monday, with 27 of those deaths in Erie County, New York.

Buffalo Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, “Unfortunately, they are still recovering bodies.”
