Weather forecasters promise snowfall throughout Georgia
The forecasters promise heavy snowfall throughout Georgia for several days, the GHN reported.
Snowfall will start today in the afternoon and will continue for four days. In addition, in the region, the temperature is expected to decrease to minus 5 degrees.
Recall, Georgia cannot open the checkpoint "Kazbegi-Lars" at the border with Russia because of the danger of avalanches. More than three hundred Armenians are blocked at border checkpoints, VZGLIAD reported.
In the area of the checkpoint it is snowing and a gale-force wind is blowing. The area is covered with mist. They have mobilized machinery to begin to clear the way if the weather improves.
So far, about 350 people - mostly Armenian citizens transiting through Georgia, cannot get to Russia. In the area of emergency there was organized delivery of food and other essentials.
For the citizens of Armenia, this checkpoint is one of the most convenient in transit to Russia.
