The United Kingdom is seeing snowfall sweeping in from Siberia in a winter storm coined the “beast from the east.” Many commuters woke up Tuesday morning facing train delays, school cancellations, and plane disruptions due to weather. Four people died in car crashes Tuesday morning, three in Lincolnshire and one in Cambridgeshire. Amid the snowstorm, British Airways has cancelled dozens of flights from Heathrow Airport in London.
Other cities across Europe have been shivering from the Arctic blast as well. Even Rome was covered in snow yesterday, an unusual occurrence. The frigid cold is expected to peak across Europe on Thursday.
