A 90-year-old-man, living alone, died in the yard of his house, trapped by the snow. State of emergency was declared in the regions of Montana, Vratsa and Lom. Strong wind caused snowdrifts, reaching over a meter of height. Yellow code for dangerously low temperatures and strong wind has been declared in 24 districts in the country for December 31.
