While many areas of the country have been affected by low temperatures and heavy rainfall, some areas in other cities such as Korca, Dardha, Llogaraja, Thethi, Peshkopia and Elbasan have been whitened by snow.
Snowfall has fallen during the night and the first hours of the morning in the city of Peshkopi and in the whole region of Dibra where the thickness of the snow has reached 5 cm.
Some mountain villages in the district of Elbasan are also covered by snow. In Steblevë, as reported, the thickness of the snow this morning had reached 20 cm, while in the Shebenik Jabllanicë National Park at about 35-40 cm.
According to the announcement of ARA, the contractors worked during the night with snowplows for cleaning the roads from snow, distributing salt and for cleaning the inerts in the areas where there had been rain before.
Road axes in such areas are open and vehicle traffic continues normally, but ARA calls on drivers to move carefully and to be equipped with winter chains and tires in mountainous areas.
