The storm unleashed 8 inches (20 cm) of snow on Thursday, causing major disruptions at both at the airport and on roadways. Normal snowfall for the entire month of November in Moscow is 16 inches.
Moscow’s city hall said the Russian capital hasn’t seen a bigger snowfall in November in about 50 years.
Many flights from Moscow’s largest airport, Domomdedovo, were delayed or canceled.
