Europe Freeze Causes 33 Deaths Since the Weekend

Temperatures in Poland, as low as -30C (-22F), have caused 10 deaths. The Europe freeze has snow falling from northern Germany to the beaches of Greece. Since the weekend the freeze has taken at least 33 lives. In Italy, the Europe freeze has claimed eight lives. One death was a man in a basement of an unused building in Milan. Another was found on the street in Florence. France also saw four deaths when a bus skidded on ice. In Bulgaria, two men from Iraq and Somalia were found frozen to death. The Czech Republic suffered the loss of six people. Another death occurred in Germany when a car skidded on ice and hit a tree.

The UK has not been affected by the cold snap to date; however, a warning has been issued that most of Britain could see snow by the end of the week as the Arctic air moves south. The cold weather has put asylum seekers at risk. It has also frozen rivers as well as Italy’s Marmore waterfall. The extreme weather across the continent has left villages cut off, caused power and water outages, frozen rivers and lakes, grounded flights and led to numerous road accidents.

Pope Francis, at the Vatican, brought attention to the homeless and asked God to “warm our hearts so we’ll help the homeless.”
