Footage posted on social media shows the residents in the snow-covered camp asking for gasoline to heat their tents and food.
Since 2011, more than a million Syrians have fled the war at home to Lebanon, where aid agencies say most live in severe poverty. Tens of thousands are in Arsal near the hills on the border with Syria.
The UN refugee agency said high winds, rain and snow had "heavily impacted" more than 150 informal settlements, including some that were flooded or collapsed. A child was reported missing, it said on Wednesday. The heavy storm inundated hundreds of tented settlements across Lebanon and left youngsters stranded in freezing temperatures, charity Save the Children said.
