Bulgaria Divided in Two by Snow Storms

Snowfalls and blizzards divided Bulgaria in two parts. The north and the south were disconnected for hours. Three avalanches have closed Petrohan passage in Stara Planina. Dozens of cars and buses got stuck in the snowdrifts. Several buses were turned by the storm. Bulgarian armed forces came to help.
The situation in the whole country was calamitous. “In Central and South Bulgaria the situation was most critical”, explained Doncho Atanassov from the National Road Agency. “2000 machines are on the roads cleaning the snow”, he pointed out. “It is better not to start a trip if it is not urgent. And yet if someone decides to travel these days for passing from northern to southern Bulgaria I recommend Vitinya passage”, Atanassov added.
