A New York resident filmed the extent of the New York snow storm using a drone to capture the extreme scene.

The drone footage by YouTube user James Grimaldi shows the snow covering half of his garage door before an aerial view of the snow storm in West Seneca, Erie County.

Grimaldi's captivating video shows a romantic winter wonderland.

Parts of New York State were coated with up to six feet of snow this week. 13 people have died so far and many have been trapped in their homes after a year's worth of snow fell in three days.

The Huffington Post reports that residents of western New York may soon have to worry about the water in their basements as well as the snow on their roofs.

Weather forecasters have predicted flooding caused by rain.

"We are preparing now for more flooding than we've seen in a long, long time," New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo said.

"We still have that challenge to look forward to." Cuomo said the state was sending in pumps, boats, helicopters and high-axle vehicles that can operate in four to five feet of water.

Meanwhile in Britain, cold temperatures will start to hit from Sunday and could cause travel disruption.

Leon Brown, meteorologist at The Weather Channel UK, told Aol Travel: "It will feel quite cold on Sunday. In the rain over the south east, temperatures could be pulled down to only 5C in the afternoon after a mild start early in the day. So, a rather miserable day and best to stay in and sit by the fire!"
