Alaska fishing town buried under record breaking snow

Huge amounts of snow, that have fallen since Christmas, are causing problems for a fishing town in Alaska which has had to call in the National Guard to help dig out its residents.

Cordova has been covered in 10ft (3m) of snow and troops have been working to clear roads and rooftops which are in danger of collapsing under the weight.
