Snowstorms wreak havoc in Europe

20 Feb 09 – “Heavy snowfall has blocked a key trans-European highway in Serbia, leaving hundreds of motorists trapped.

“Swept by strong crosswinds, the unrelenting snowfall left motorists stranded for up to 12 hours in both directions on the E75 highway near the southern Serbian city of Nis, reports said.

“The E75 links Western Europe with Bulgaria, Greece, Kosovo, Macedonia and Turkey.

“Hundreds of towns in Bulgaria's north were left without electricity as power lines across the Balkan mountain range were brought down, while an avalanche closed the key mountain pass of Petrohan.

“In Serbia, a number of regional roads including the main one to Macedonia had also been blocked as snow had been falling non-stop for more than 48 hours in some parts of Serbia's southeast.

“An elderly couple froze to death in their house in a village near Pozarevac, about 70km southeast of Belgrade, while another man was found dead on the outskirts of the capital.”
