Snow storms in Montenegro

On 13 February 2012, the NATO Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre (EADRCC) received a request for assistance from Montenegro.

Due to continuous snowfall since the beginning of February 2012, the snow cover reaches up to 2 meters in central and northern parts of Montenegro. As a result of the disaster, the Security Council of Montenegro has proclaimed the State of Emergency on the entire territory.

Due to heavy snow storms and avalanches on roads, all lines of communication from the Capital to the North of Montenegro are cut off. Only routes in the south are temporary operational.

approximately 10 - 12 thousand citizens have been cut off from administrative centers for a week and longer. This population mainly lives in the countryside, like mountain villages, having no electricity, stocks of food and medicines. It is expected that a significant number of citizens need to be evacuated.
