Avalanches possible in Carpathians
Avalanche hazard in the mountains of Zakarpattia region (west of Ukraine) has been declared.
As reported by the Transcarpathian weather center, the risk of avalanches in the highlands of the Carpathians is due to a large amount of snow which fell in the mountains recently.
Therefore, the regional emergencies department recommends that vacationers and tourists, as well as lovers of winter travels and ski trips would refrain from climbing in the mountains and follow the rules of personal safety over the period of weather worsening.
Rescuers warned that avalanche risk situation will continue in the Carpathians over the coming days. UKRINFORM
