Snow in Paris causes transport chaos


Parts of the capital and the suburbs witnessed 15 centimeters of heavy snowfall in just a few hours on Dec. 8 (local time). The snow caused travel chaos in Paris and the surrounding areas. Vehicles on the freeway stretched about 420 kilometers and buses in the downtown area had to be suspended for a while. Even the high-speed trains, known as TVG in France, had to run on a limited schedule. The snow also caused hundreds of flights to be canceled and forced the closure of Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports.
