Heavy snow blocks access to several Austrian villages

Heavy snow and rain continued to cause disruption after authorities called a state of emergency in parts of Austria at the beginning of the week. Schools and roads were closed as avalanches and mudslides got dangerously close to several villages and in the Salzburg region residents were evacuated from their houses. Snowfall which started last Wednesday and continued into the new week also caused evacuations in Styria and caused a massive power cut in East Tyrol. Italy’s South Tyrol region was also hit.
