Heavy Snowfall in Poland Leaves 300,000 without Power

WARSAW – Power cuts caused by heavy snowfall in parts of Poland have left some 300,000 homes without electricity, authorities said on Friday.

Marek Kubiak, from the government’s security center, assured affected residents that the majority of power generators would be back up and running within the next few hours.

However, weather warnings for drivers to take extra precaution on the roads were to remain in place following the first heavy snowfall of the season that particularly affected the mountainous southern regions of the central European nation.

Photographs provided by epa showed the southern city of Zakopane, where a dump of fresh snow prompted some locals to break out the skis and take to the nearby fields.

Despite the alerts, all major roads have been cleared by snowplows and are running normally.

Temperatures in Poland are expected to dip between 5 C (41 F) and -1 C (30.2 F).
