Masses of snow cause problems in the Alps of Italy
Masses of fresh snow ensure the highest avalanche warning level in Austria. Traffic is severely restricted in Italy and Switzerland. Sports events are canceled.
Large amounts of fresh snow in parts of the #Alps have led to significant #traffic problems and the greatest danger of avalanches. The Brenner Pass between Austria and Italy was also affected. There train connections were interrupted and the motorway was partially closed. There are many power outages in all of South #Tyrol, said the civil defense. Around 1,400 firefighters have been on duty since Sunday morning. The highest avalanche warning level was declared in East Tyrol in Austria. According to the authorities, spontaneous avalanches, “occasionally extremely large ones,” are to be expected. Train traffic and road traffic were also affected in Switzerland. In the northern Italian region of #Veneto, too, the fire brigade was on duty around the clock and deployed more than 400 times. In the Dolomites area around Belluno, the snow piled meters high, power lines were damaged.
