Snow falls in Argentina’s Córdoba for first time in 14 years
Buenos Aires, Jun 16 (EFE).- Snowfall surprised residents of several areas of the interior of Argentina Wednesday, including the city of Córdoba, which was blanketed in white for the first time in 14 years.
Across social networks, #Córdoba was the most used hashtag throughout the day, with multitudes of messages from users in the area saying they had not seen snow since 2007, and publishing their photos and videos.
“This is how our field woke up. It snowed in Córdoba after 14 years,” wrote the Club Atlético Las Flores on Twitter.
Due to the situation, the Highway Police of the province had to stop traffic on various national and provincial routes, but no significant incidents were recorded.
The National Meteorological Service of Argentina reported snowfall not only in the province of Córdoba, but also in others such as Mendoza and San Luis and in elevated areas of San Juan, La Rioja and Catamarca.
A few days before winter begins, the organization also warned of low temperatures until next Friday of between -2 and 5 degrees Celsius, and highs of between 6-13C. EFE
