Slovenia Ice Storm.

Slovenia Ice Storm.



Slovenia, snowstorms have caused enormous damage to the extent that the state of natural disaster proved. Half of the country's forests have been damaged by freezing rain and completely frozen landscape. Trees and power lines like giant ice. This video was filmed in the town of Postojna in southwestern Slovenia.

Roughly one-quarter of Slovenia was affected by severe ice storms and blizzards on Tuesday which the country's Defence Minister Roman Jakis has described as "a large-scale natural disaster".

Trains have been brought to a standstill, and one in four homes have been left without electricity amid sub-zero temperatures. Slovenian authorities have reported that over 5,000 people have been evacuated and 40% of alpine forest has been damaged as a result of the heavy onslaught of snow and ice.

Slovenian prime minister Alenka Bratusek has requested assistance from fellow EU member states through the European Union Civil Protection Mechanism.
