Hell – the town in Michigan not the fiery realm presided over by Satan – has been plunged to temperatures of -26C as the polar vortex continues to affect northern parts of the US.
A Facebook page dedicated to the spookily named town has uploaded various photographs which show the streets of Hell blanketed with thick layers of snow, causing some amusement.
As reported by Click On Detroit some residents of Hell have been forced to head to a warming centre at the Hell Saloon in a bid to keep the chill at bay.
Hell Saloon manager, Erik Kauser, reportedly said:

Meteorology director of the Weather Underground firm, Jeff Masters, told The Guardian:
I don’t think there’s ever been a case where we’ve seen [such a big] shift in temperatures,
Past record-cold waves have not dissipated this quickly. Here we are going right into spring-like temperatures.
