CHISINAU, February 14 (Itar-Tass) —— Two days of heavy snowfalls and frosts have paralyzed Moldova.
Dozens of inter-city buses are halted, and lights are out in five towns. Classes are suspended at 200 educational establishments in over 50% of Moldovan districts and cut to 30 minutes in others. There is no railroad traffic between Chisinau and Bucharest due to the snow drifts on the border with Romania. More than 400 vehicles are clearing roads of snow.
Weathermen say that snowfalls will stop by nighttime, but frosts will reach minus 20 degrees Celcius in certain areas on Wednesday.
