A travel ban in New York City has ended as the eastern US begins digging out from the weekend's massive snowstorm.

New York, the most populated city in the US, saw its second-highest snowfall since records began in 1869.

As five states saw snowfall of 3 feet or more, the death toll was raised to at least 28 people.

People died in car accidents, from carbon monoxide poisoning and from heart attacks while shovelling snow.

The storm, dubbed "Snow-mageddon" and "Snow-zilla", is now weakening and heading for the Atlantic Ocean.
