If your talking lives lost, there is no contest in recorded history. In November 1950, in what was dubbed the “Storm of the Century”, the eastern US was dumped with heavy snow and winds. From the 25th to the 27th, the nation watched as the storm caused $70 million in damage (1950s money) and 383 lives across 22 states. See the link for other bad blizzards in US history including one that took the lives of as many as 200 school children.
An 1888 blizzard on the East Coast killed over 400 people, slightly more than the 1950 storm. The “Schoolhouse Blizzard” that oharem mentioned took place the same year.
