In Poland, the snow fell so much that in some places the wire power lines broke and were broken or badly iced over, leaving without electricity for about 70 thousand inhabitants of Warsaw. Worse weather conditions have caused disruptions and delays in public transport across the country. To restore proezzhabelnost roads, the traffic services had to work all night.
In Moscow, a little fresh snow had melted, causing a slight flooding in low-lying areas of the city, as well as in parks and central squares.
