One of Poland’s deadliest-ever cold snaps killed at least 21 people over the weekend, with temperatures falling to -18C (-0.4F), officials say. (Interesting how they call it a “cold snap.”)
National police spokeswoman Bozena Wysocka said Monday that 39 people have frozen to death since Nov. 1, including 21 last weekend when temperatures fell to -18 C (0 F).
In addition, six tourists have slipped and fallen to their deaths since Dec. 25 while trekking on frozen snow and ice in the Polish Tatras.
