Snow brings Code Orange to Sofia
Once again Code Orange has been announced covering Sofia and 13 other Bulgarian districts due to the major snowfall and heavy winter conditions.
The Regional Development Minister asked people not to travel unless absolutely necessary. Several roads in the Rousse region have been closed to vehicles. The Lyulin highway between Sofia and Pernik has been temporarily closed while snow is removed.
Heavy snowfall is forecast to continue today and Friday, with the extremely cold weather expected to last at least until the end of the week.
