Roads block – 45 villages cut off
“Mighty snowstorm in Turkey drops 1 meter of snow in 12 hours blocking roads and closing schools in Artvin,” says this report.
“The snowstorm currently hitting the region of Artvin in Turkey is going biblical. More than 1 meter of dry powder since last night and the snow is still falling.”
“45 villages are cut from the world – 10 in the province center, 15 in the Kurdish province, 5 in the province of Şiran and 15 in the province of Torul – after roads are overloaded with snow.”

Note: When I tried to verify this, I found an article (below) saying that snow depth reached one meter (39 inches) at the Atabari Ski Center, but measured 20 cm (8 inches) in the province center. The article confirms that 45 villages have been cut off.
