FRANCE-WEATHER-SNOW

A snow plough removes the snow from the streets in Cherbourg following heavy snowfalls on March 12, 2013. 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 today. Overnight Monday nearly 500 cars were blocked near Cherbourg where snowdrifts piled up 60 centimetres (almost two feet) as winds reached 100 kilometres (more than 60 miles) an hour.
