Heavy snowfalls and strong winds cause disruption in air, road traffic

BERLIN - Deadly winter weather blasted Europe for yet another day on Tuesday, trapping hundreds of people in Alpine regions, whipping up high winds that caused flight cancellations and increasing the risks of more deadly avalanches

At least 13 people have been killed in weather-related accidents in Europe over the last week, most of them from avalanches.

In Norway, attempts to find the bodies of four skiers were again put on hold due to poor visibility and heavy snowfall. A Swedish woman, 29, and three Finns, aged 29, 32 and 36, were presumed dead after a 300-meter wide avalanche hit a valley near the northern city of Tromsoe last week.
