Heavy snow hits southern provinces

Heavy overnight snowfalls in the south of the Netherlands led to traffic chaos in southern areas on Tuesday morning, with weather centre KNMI forecasting up to 10 centimetres more during the day.

Most of the snow is affecting Noord-Brabant, Limburg and parts of Zeeland and Gelderland. The KNMI has issued a code orange warning for the provinces of Limburg and the south-east of Brabant.

During Tuesday’s rush hour, there were traffic jams of 40 kilometres on the A2 between Eindhoven and Maastricht. Motoring organisation ANWB said drivers were taking extra care and there were no reports so far of accidents.

Dutch railways NS are not reporting any problems on the railways, but fewer trains are running to cope with the situation.
