Huge queue of snow ploughs seen in Buffalo as they prepare to tackle damage caused by storm Elliot

This video shows part of a convoy of huge snow ploughs as they prepared to tackle the damage caused during the blizzard in Buffalo, New York, USA.

Seven of the giant vehicles were filmed travelling as part of a 22-strong convoy drafted in to clear roads left unpassable by snow.

Winter storm Elliott has caused carnage across the United States with Buffalo bearing the brunt, with 50 inches of snow in the region resulting in at least 34 deaths.

The cold snap has been felt across the country with states like Florida in the deep south experiencing temperatures plummeting.

Rick Munschauer, 35, a Geophysicist from Providence, Rhode Island, shot the video on December 27th on Soldier's Circle in the Albright neighbourhood.

Rick was in town to see his parents when the blizzard weather struck the area and local authorities implemented travel bans.

One passerby is heard already counting 15 snow ploughs as an additional seven are seen in the video.

He said: "The Blizzard was indeed historic and is rightfully being compared to Buffalo's Blizzard of 77 in terms of severity.

"Lake effect snow is common in buffalo, but the magnitude of this storm is next level.

"I believe wind gusts recorded at the Buffalo airport were equivalent to hurricane wind speeds.

"Severe wind caused large snow drifts burring many streets in and around of Buffalo.

"These snow drifts caused the roadways to become impassible by any type of vehicles including plows and emergency service vehicles."

Rick was shocked when he saw a "conga line" of ploughs as they operate as individual vehicles usually when snow hits the area.

"The volume of trucks headed down the street was staggering as plows typically operate as a solo entity.

"There were a few before and after, it's common to see these types of plows, however, I was taken aback by this snow plow conga line."

Luckily for Rick, his Christmas travels visiting his family were not marred by power outages like many others in the area.

"My parents’ house, where I'm staying, luckily did not lose power.

"My sister found out a friend of a friend lost power a few blocks away.

"She was able to go to this stranger’s house and outfit her with proper snow walking gear - snow goggles, boots, etc.

"They then were able to get to my parents’ house and safely wait out the worst of the storm.

"When they left the powerless house, the thermostat read -40*F."

Munschauer said that they feel as if the worst is over but expected more from the local authorities during the height of the snowfall.

At least 60 people across the US have lost their lives to storm Elliott.
