While most of the US woke up under a blanket of snow and icy temperatures, other parts of the world are suffering from extreme weather also: Coastal areas of Britain today are bracing for a combination of heavy flooding, high tides and strong winds. Officials have now issued 16 severe flood warnings for the coastal regions.

Emergency teams have put in place sandbags as a way to break the strong waves, and brace for the floods. Tens of thousands of Britons have also lost power following earlier storms.
