Record snowfall disrupts life in Madrid.

Schools, courts and museums were closed throughout Madrid on January 11, two days after central Spain was hit by a massive snowstorm. Officials have asked people to stay at home if possible after Storm Filomena dumped between 20-30 centimeters of snow on Madrid on January 9, the heaviest snowfall since 1971. The storm killed at least three people as it swept through Spain and kept emergency services workers and army snow ploughs busy, freeing 2,500 drivers trapped in their vehicles.
