Heavy snow fall causes accidents, could lead to avalanches
Snow has been falling heavily across most parts of the Czech Republic, for most of the day on Monday. Meteorologists have warned that as much as 15 centimeters of snow will fall over the course of the day in some areas. The wintery conditions have complicated traffic on Czech roads especially in southern Moravia where over 50 car accidents took place. In the Vysočina region there were at least 40. Rescue services in the Krkonoše Mountains have raised the hazard level to three, warning of possible avalanches.
