(CNN) —  

Check out some of these eye-popping statistics from the Arctic outbreak that has put the US in a deep freeze and the monster winter storm threatening the East Coast.

Snowstorm

  • More than 60 million people in 15 different states stretching from Maine to Georgia are under some type of warning or advisory from the current winter storm.
  • More than 13 million people from North Carolina to Maine are under blizzard warnings.
  • The storm will dump snow over a stretch of the East Coast more than 1,400 miles long. Track the storm here
  • Tallahassee, Florida, recorded measurable snow on Wednesday for the first time in 28 years. (last time was December 1989)
  • Charleston, South Carolina, saw a record of 5.3 inches of snow, which was the largest snowfall in 28 years. (since December 1989, which was its largest snowfall ever – 8 inches)
  • Atlantic City, New Jersey, was blanketed under as much as 11 inches of snow as of Thursday morning.

Bitter cold

  • Over the next week, more than 30% of the US population will experience temps below zero degrees Fahrenheit. As many as 75% will see temps dip below the freezing mark.
  • On Thursday morning it was 20 degrees in Tallahassee, Florida, which was more than 10 degrees colder than Anchorage, Alaska, where it was 33 degrees.
  • Chicago is not expected to climb above 20 degrees until Sunday, which would tie a record (from 1936 and 1895) of 12 consecutive days without reaching at least 20 degrees.
  • Dozens of cities in the eastern US are expected to set record lows Friday, Saturday and Sunday, including New York City and Philadelphia – predicted to be 3 degrees and 1 degree, respectively – and Boston, where temperatures may drop to -7.
