It’s been pretty chilly here in Houston these past few days, but it’s nothing compared to the winter wonderland seen across the country lately.

Parts of Japan are dealing with treacherous blizzard conditions.

The storm has already caused a bullet train to derail, trapping more than one hundred passengers for about six hours, but it’s also being blamed for at least five deaths.

Four of those were found in a car that was buried in snow.

The engine was left running, so rescuers say it’s likely they died from carbon monoxide poisoning.

Another man and his daughter tried to walk after their car got stuck.

The man, who was found draped over his daughter’s body died, but his daughter is OK.

Meteorologists are calling for more blizzards but let’s just hope this killer storm doesn’t take anymore lives.
