Russian winter kills 20 in Europe

Siberian cold has hit Eastern Europe. According to recent reports, the cold has already killed 20 people.

The largest number of victims is in Switzerland, where on Sunday 11 people were buried under a layer of snow from an avalanche, the Russian News Service reports. Two other tourists were injured. In addition, four people were killed in Croatia, two - in Serbia. Seven people froze to death in the Czech Republic. Most victims are mostly homeless people, who have no place to take shelter in cold weather, Vesti.ru reports.

Montenegro has not seen such a snowfall in 60 years. According to Ecology and Life, snow has virtually closed the capital of the country, Podgorica. Airports in Montenegro are closed too. The Danube River - one of the key waterways of Europe - has frozen.

Bad weather has left many people in Germany without electricity. In Italy, snow blizzards destroyed vegetables and fruits. According to farmers, they will lose about 100 tons of their products.

Snowfalls have paralyzed air and rail traffic in the Netherlands, Belgium and Northern France. UK airports stopped working as well. KLM and Air France have canceled several flights to Paris and Amsterdam.

The ruthless march of the Russian winter will reach Italy by the middle of the week, adds Gismeteo. Temperatures will drop down to -20 degrees Centigrade in the Alps and in the Balkans.
