Snow and ice continue to disrupt traffic

Up to 16 cm of fresh snow fell in the Czech Republic on Saturday, disrupting traffic in most parts of the country. Hundreds of road accidents occurred over the weekend which killed three people and left dozens of injured. Most roads continue to be covered with snow and ice on Sunday, mainly in the elevated Vysočina region; the authorities have asked drivers to take extra care or stay off the roads if they can as more snow is expected in the western part of the country. Two flights from Prague’s Václav Havel Airport have been cancelled.
