Avalanches, accidents bring Europe's winter death toll to 21

SeattlePI.com Tuesday, 15 January 2019
BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Heavy snow paralyzed much of Europe for yet another day, cutting off mountain villages, sparking avalanches like one that crashed into a Swiss hotel and killing at least four more people Friday. Workers at the Hotel Saentis in eastern Switzerland spent Friday shoveling out hip-deep snow after a 300-meter (330-yard) wide avalanche smashed through the hotel's windows Thursday afternoon and piled up in rooms and the dining hall. Police said three people were hurt by avalanche in Schwaegalp. In all, at least 21 weather-related deaths have been reported in Europe in the last 10 days. The Bulgarian Red Cross said two snowboarders were killed died in an avalanche in southwest Bulgaria's Pirin Mountains.
