In an apolitical move Bulgaria’s Foreign Ministry has issued instructions to all its citizens to
refrain from travelling to France, unless absolutely necessary, over the complicated winter
situation in the country.
The travel advisory is stronger for Eastern France over the first snowfall, which created huge traffic congestions and disruptions. On Thursday, hundreds of people were blocked in their automobiles between the cities of Grenoble and Lyon. The snow cover in the mountains has reached half-meter height.
Three people have died after the season’s first snowfall stirred traffic chaos in France, RFI reports.
Twenty five departments in France between the Ardennes and the Alpes are on high alert and under code orange with more snowfall in the forecast for Friday.
Bulgarian citizens have been advised to gather information about the weather and road conditions on their route and strictly observe rules while driving in the winter situation and obey directions of French authorities.
