Here are some of the places that received the most snow from US winter storms.

(CNN) — A long-lasting winter storm swept across the United States last week, bringing heavy snow and blizzards to many parts of the country, while a massive Arctic windstorm brought temperatures to dangerously low levels across much of the country.

More than half of the US population spent the Christmas weekend under a low wind chill advisory.

Brutal winter conditions buried communities under snow, knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of homes, closed highways, hampered holiday travel, forced hundreds of rescues and led to emergency declarations.

As it passed over the Great Lakes, the storm became a bomb cyclone which led to blizzard and winter weather conditions as well as blizzard warnings. Particularly in New York State, heavy snow fell, stranding even emergency vehicles and causing widespread power outages.

Here are some of the places that received the most snow from winter storms.
