Snowstorm in Moscow kills 10

Snowstorm in Moscow kills 10. 46185.jpegA sudden change of weather in Moscow and in the Moscow region has caused several car accidents with tragic outcomes.

Ten people have been killed in the accidents, about 30 were hospitalized. A snowstorm and a drop of temperature by several degrees have literally turned Moscow roads into staking rinks, especially on bridges. The snowstorm will continue in the Russian capital, and weather conditions may become even more extreme: meteorologists expect an ice storm in the city.

Trees may fall and electric power lines may break in such weather, Vesti.ru website said.

Residents of several areas of Moscow and the region have witnesses ice balls with water inside falling from the sky, NTV reports. That was a phenomenon of the ice storm, meteorologists said. 

 

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
