Ice Age in Moscow

Freezing rain causes problems in Moscow

Moscow streets turn into skating rink. Domodedovo, one of Moscow's main airports, has ground to a halt after iced-up electricity cables ruptured.

One of Moscow's two main airports, Domodedovo, has suspended all flights on Sunday after the electricity went off in the whole complex due to the icing-up of power cables. Roads and cars in the capital are covered with ice after rain that started on Saturday froze solid. At least five people have been injured by falling trees. Several districts in the Moscow region have also been left without power, with over 100,000 people affected. City authorities are urging people to stay at home.
