Temperatures plunged in Greece early Tuesday (Feb 28) as heavy snows swept across the country, even blanketing Athens suburbs.
In the capital’s northern suburbs, temperatures stood at zero celsius, while in the north of Greece temperatures were expected to fall below minus seven degrees.
Several people trapped in their cars by the snow were dug out by rescue teams near the central Greek town of Karpenissi.
The cold is expected to last for several days.
