On Saturday, snowfall occurred in the north and center of the country. The Institute of Meteorology and Water Management warns against dangerous weather. Forecasters issued level 1 warnings.
It snowed heavily in the Przasnysz and Ciechanów counties, which are located in Masovia. – On Saturday, drivers experienced difficult conditions on the Krasne – Wola Wierzbowska route. Snowfall and strong wind caused snowdrifts to form, which made driving difficult. Drivers helped each other, and residents of nearby towns offered help using tractors – said Michał Szczyglak from Radio Rekord Mazowsze and the cozadzien.pl portal.
– Despite the call, the fire brigade could not send help for fear of combat vehicles getting stuck in the snow. After more than three hours, the driver managed to get out of the snow trap. A route that normally takes 25 minutes took over three hours today. Despite the difficulties, the situation showed that Poles can help each other selflessly, he added.
