French TGV high-speed trains are blocked in the gare du Nord railway station in Paris as high-speed lines are suspended due to heavy snow falls. More than 68,000 homes were without electricity in France and hundreds of people were trapped in their cars. Road, train and air traffic are disrupted in many areas. 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'.
