A man sat at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Wacker Drive in Chicago on Tuesday as temperatures fell.

最强北极寒流“极地涡旋”(Polar Vortex)30日发威,美国中西部各州城市因酷寒停摆,芝加哥居民上网分享各种天寒地冻的影像,还将芝加哥与西伯利亚二词结合,戏称自己住在“芝伯利亚”(#Chiberia)!

芝加哥是全美第三大城,气温却降至比南极部分区域还冷,已被预测将成“极冷中心”,30日一早测得摄氏零下28.3度(华氏零下19度)即打破1966年的白天最低温纪录,体感温度据报是摄氏零下45度。预期实际温度会持续下探,有可能挑战1985年的摄氏零下32.8度(华氏零下27度)全市最低温纪录。

因为天寒地冻,芝加哥的公路难得不壅塞,照常发车的公共汽车、地铁与通勤电车门可罗雀。餐厅、商店与知名观光景点歇业,两座主要机场取消超过1500个航班,美国国铁(Amtrak)全部班次停开,市长易曼纽(Rahm Emanuel)已呼吁市民尽可能不要外出。

除芝加哥外,北达科塔州格兰福克斯(Grand Forks, ND)测得摄氏零下54度的极低温。中西部各州停班停课,向来习惯冬季恶劣天气的居民都留在家中,还有人通报疑似是霜震(frost quake)的神秘压碎声。医院可见民众因冻疮或低温相关疾病求诊,监狱取消受刑人的家属会见。为避免啤酒在运输过程结冻,制造商决定推迟出货。农民采取各种措施保护乳牛、幼犊与各种牲口,还为家禽盖起冰屋,动保团体则建议饲主将宠物带进家中。

30日太阳下山后的温度降得更低,包含纽约与华府在内,预测中西部与东北各地至少40个低温纪录可能会被打破。

美国国家气象局专家认为,天气之冷可能创下历史新纪录,同时警告民众,夹杂着强风的短时间大量降雪会严重妨碍视线,开车上路将非常危险。

Okay, so I asked my cousins in whether it was really as cold as people are saying with boiling water instantly turning to snow. Apparently it is 😮
