Big snowstorms hit the western US

Heavy snowstorms have engulfed parts of California and Nevada in the western United States.

Snow has closed roads, ski resorts and left thousands of people without power in their homes.

The storms have particularly affected the Sierra mountain range in Nevada, where winds have reached up to 305 kilometers per hour.

People have been warned of "high risk of an avalanche".

Forecasters have urged people to stay where they are through the weekend, as they could be trapped in the storm if they move.

Meanwhile, in some other parts of the USA, countries like Texas are facing the other extreme - forest fires./ REL
