26 Jul 11 - The Eastern Cape province has seen its heaviest snowfall in more than 20 years.

Several motorists were already trapped in snow or stuck on closed roads, Eastern Cape local government MEC Mlibo Qoboshiyana said in a statement.

"It is snowing heavily and very dangerous between Ugie and Elliot," said Qoboshiyana. "Since the snow started falling, a number of buses, taxis, private vehicles have been stuck and trapped in the snow."

More than 18 roads have already been closed.

"Nobody must even think of venturing out on the roads," said resident Dries van Niekerk, owner of Dries Auto. "Today is a day to stay indoors and drink Gluhwein."

He said this was the worst snow storm he had seen in the town since 1992.
