Tourists cut off by avalanches following heavy snowfall in Austria

Thousands of tourists cut off by avalanches following heavy snowfall in western Austria - The ski resort villages of Lech, Zuers and Stuben have been hit and the Vorarlberg region is covered with snow after more than two feet fell in 24 hours. Roads from the villages have been closed since midday on Wednesday. A further foot of snow was expected to fall last night and it's unclear when the roads will reopen. 'The avalanche danger is simply too great at present to drive along the roads to these towns. But the bars and restaurants are well stocked and there is no danger of power failures, so everyone will be comfortable." Experts at Austria's Avalanche Warning Service have put out their HIGHEST AVALANCHE ALERT YET THIS WINTER SEASON for many parts of Austria.
