Northern Africa caught the edges of Europe’s polar blast over the weekend and into Monday. Heavy snowfall affected several wilayas (provinces) in Algeria yesterday, as reported by alg24.net.
The key national road 33, linking Bouira to Tizi-Ouzou, was closed during Monday morning rush-hour near the town of El Asnam. As was the RN30, the alternative route connecting Bouira to Tizi-Ouzou.
Heavy early-season drifts also shut national road 15 near Iferhounene, in the wilaya of Tizi-Ouzou.
Same case for the RN109 linking Sidi Bel Abbès and El-Bayadh.
And the road 172, located between Djbel Chélia and Lyabous (Khenchela) was also shut.
