FRANCE-WEATHER-SNOW

An ERDF (Electricity Network Distribution France) technician fixes a damaged power line after heavy snowfalls on March 14, 2013 in Gatteville-Le-Phare, , northern France. More than 68,000 homes were without electricity in France and hundreds of people were trapped in their cars after a winter storm hit with heavy snow, officials and weather services said on March 12. Twenty-six regions in northwest and northern France were put on orange alert because of heavy snowfalls, which Meteo France said were 'remarkable for the season because of the expected quantity and length of time'.
