Snow causes trouble on SA roads

Four trucks jack-knifed and a bus veered off slippery roads in South Africa’s Eastern Cape as snow measuring between 5 and 20cm fell in high-laying areas in province, while traffic authorities closed four mountain passes in the province due to dangerous driving conditions. News24 quotes the South African weather service as saying that no more snow is predicted this week but that another cold front is expected by the end of it.
