The storm couldn't have come at a worse time for Haitians struggling to deal with the effects of Saturday's 7.2 magnitude earthquake, blamed for an estimated 1,400 deaths.
The death toll stands at at least nine with 152 people still missing and their weary families waiting in agony almost four days after the incident.
Avalanches, flooding and harsh winter weather has killed nearly 130 people across Pakistan and Afghanistan since Sunday.
Eleven people have been rescued from in and around an avalanche-hit hotel in Italy's Gran Sasso national park, some of them surviving for two days under ice and rubble. Separately, six people died in a helicopter accident in the region on Tuesday.
