Heaviest snowstorm in 50 years blankets northern Iran

Published: 02.03.14, 14:45 / Israel News

The heaviest snowstorm in five decades has blanketed provinces in northern Iran, cutting power supplies and trapping villagers, Iranian media reported Monday.


The storm is "unprecedented for the past 50 years, with two meters (almost seven feet) of snow falling since Friday," a Mazandaran provincial official said, quoted by the media. "Our main problems are (the provision of) power and water, which have been cut off due to the heavy snow," he said. (AFP)
