Record snowfall brings northern Germany

to a standstill


7-foot snowdrifts trap motorists in their cars

page delimiter


11 Jan 10 - More than 30cm (12in) of snow fell on the northern half of Germany; more than 1m (3 feet) fell near the Baltic coast, and two-meter-high snowdrifts (almost seven feet) trapped motorists in their cars - they couldn't open their car doors.

Many rural villages near the Polish border are cut off, with more snow in the forecast.

"Downed power lines plunged 200,000 Polish and 100,000 Dutch households into darkness," says this article in the Irish Times, and "a shopping centre in the western city of Leszno was evacuated after its snow-covered roof began to give way."

"Flooding hit Italy and Spain, with the heaviest snowfall on the Galician coast in 25 years; it even snowed on Mallorca."
