In those mountains up to 70 cm (27½ inches) of snow has fallen.
Dear mister Felix,
My special thanks to you for placing the article from the Christian Science Monitor about the victims of the Iran earthquake on your website.
Here is what seems at first to be just a trivial article local Kurdish news about a mountain road in the border area between Iraq (Marivan) and Iran (Baneh) being blocked by snow.
In those mountains up to 70 cm (27½ inches) of snow has fallen. This is pretty close to the mountain area in the northwest of Iran where these 100.000 people are still living in tents. I seem to be one of the few people who cares about their fate.
Heavy snowfall blocking the Marivan – Baneh road tells us an important story that the MSM keeps quiet about.
Heavey snow blocks Marivan- Baneh path
Heavey snow in the recent days blocked Baneh- Marivan road, Paveh Transportation Office Chief told Kurd press news agency.
“Due to recent falls in the last days, Paveh to Marivan road in Tata ghat has been blocked,” Ibrahim Shahriari said, adding that the way had been blocked two times in last two months.
He further added snow height has arrived 70cm (27½ inches) in some mountainous regions.
