One of the coldest spells in HISTORY wreaks havoc across the Midwest where rail tracks are set alight to keep trains moving and people are warned to 'avoid taking deep breaths' in -70 wind chill

The polar vortex is here and it's wreaking havoc on tens of millions of people across the United States who are bracing for a deep arctic chill that has halted postage services in five states and cancelled more than 2,700 flights.

Winter Storm Jayden has already been blamed for at least four weather-related deaths in Midwestern states, and authorities believe it will continue to be life-threatening throughout the week.

Forecasters have predicted that Chicago will be colder than parts of Alaska, the North Pole and Antarctica, which is in the middle of summer.

At the US McMurdo Antarctic research station, temperatures are predicted to be in the teens and low 20s, compared to Chicago's minus 28 prediction.

According to meteorologist, Ryan Maue, Chicago will be colder than the North Pole on Thursday. 'The Arctic Ocean including North Pole will probably be around -20F but that's normal over the snow covered ice,' Maue tweeted.

Because of the extreme cold in Chicago, crews had to set rail tracks on fire to keep trains moving smoothly. In Chicago alone, more than 1,550 were canceled in and out of the city.
