Heavy snowfall blocks roads in Afghanistan

Up to 50 cm (19¾ inches) of snow.

Heavy snowfall has blocked roads between districts and Chaghcharan, the provincial capital, creating problems in transporting ballot boxes to the capital of western Ghor province, according to officials with the Afghanistan Natural Disaster Management Authority (ANDMA)..

Up to 50 cm (19¾ inches) of snow was recorded in Lal Sarjangal, Dolina and Shahrak districts, Hamidullah Dadfar told Pajhwok Afghan News.

This latest snowfall in Ghor is a record in the past decade.

Reader’s comment: The Dutch MSM have reported about the Afghanistan elections, but not a single word about the record snowfall in a decade over there.

  1. If the MSM was really interested in reporting what’s best for the planet they’d be heralding the fact record snowfall has fallen in as arid a location as Afghanistan. The mountain snowpack, just like here, supplies fresh water for the entire year. Without the snow, without the fresh water, crops and animals will not grow.

    The hypocrisy by those with an alarmist agenda is breathtaking.

  2. Winter storm and snowfall warnings for parts of Quebec. The statement for the snowfall warnings says “rainfall” but I believe that was put there by mistake as there are also rainfall warnings for other parts of the province.


    3:15 PM EDT Monday 07 April 2014
    Winter storm warning in effect for:
    Blanc-Sablon, Chevery and Natashquan regions

    Heavy snow will begin Tuesday evening and overnight over these regions. Winds will also cause blowing snow. Snowfall accumulations could reach 25 centimetres (9.8″).

    3:15 PM EDT Monday 07 April 2014
    Snowfall warning in effect for:
    Charlevoix, Minganie and Sept-Îles – Port-Cartier regions

    Rainfall amounts of 15 cm (5.9″) are expected over higher elevations of Charlevoix Tuesday morning. Similar amounts are expected over Sept-Îles and Minganie beginning in the afternoon.

    A low pressure system from Texas is moving toward the Great Lakes this evening and will move along the St Lawrence Valley Tuesday. Rain associated with this system will begin this evening over extreme Southwestern Quebec and will then intensify overnight as it spreads toward central and eastern parts of the province.

    Also, while temperatures are not very cold in Eastern Quebec, they will remain near the freezing mark, allowing for significant amounts of snow over the north shore. The snow could be wet or mixed with
    rain over some areas.
