Today, in the Central Plains States of the US, they are having a major blizzard. They had one a week ago. The weather services have said that this one will be larger than the last one. They got a foot of snow last week.
I hope everyone stays safe.
I found a map by the US Department of Agriculture showing the Central Plains. I had to wipe out the rest of the states and name the Central Plains to show where the blizzard is taking place.

This is a map of the US states by the EPA, Environmental Protection Agency. I drew a light blue line around West Virginia and Pennsylvania, where the Allegheny Mountains are located.
