24-mile-long (40km) traffic jam clogs major freeway.

“Hundreds of drivers were caught by surprise in a 40km traffic jam after an unexpected snowfall and heavy winds,” says this article from Voice of Russia, RT. “They are now waiting in long lines on the federal freeway connecting Moscow and St. Petersburg, the country’s biggest cities.”

“Russia’s European part endured heavy snowfall since Wednesday, culminating in massive precipitation on Friday.

The M-10 road, which is used by many truckers delivering cargo from St. Petersburg ports inland to Moscow, experienced problems on Thursday. By Friday, freighters and passenger cars had choked up the route, forming a kilometers-long jam near Tver in central Russia.

Authorities are providing drivers with hot food, shelter, medical help and fuel.
