Snow chaos in North America.

MASSIVE snowstorms are sweeping the USA bringing chaos to roads and airports. A record-breaking storm buried sections of north-eastern America under more than two feet of snow.

All three of the major New York-area airports were closed for much of yesterday and airlines cancelled more than 500 flights.

Elsewhere, 21 in of snow fell at Columbia, Maryland, as well as communities in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. About 7,500 people were stuck in Florida's Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport because their destinations were snowbound.

New York's Kennedy had reopened with limited service when a Turkish Airlines flight skidded off the runway as it was landing early today. None of the 198 passengers was injured.
