Bucharest/Sofia.

Several vehicles transporting Romanian citizens are stuck in snow on Bulgaria’s territory, Romania’s Foreign Ministry said Saturday, cited by Romanian Mediafax news agency.

The ministry said Romania’s Embassy to Sofia intervened so that local administration authorities take rapid measures and clean the roads to help the Romanian citizens stuck in snow, adding the powerful gusts of wind and heavy snow falls make the snow-removal operations difficult.

Two of the vehicles stuck in snow in Bulgaria entered Romania through Vama Veche customs point, southeastern Romania, but cannot make it any farther as the road is blocked by snow.

According to Constanta Frontier Police Inspectorate chief Adrian Toba, Romanian frontier authorities cannot help the other people stuck in snow as they are far from Romania’s border.

Constanta county’s prefect Claudiu Palaz said the 57 passengers of the two vehicles that entered Romania are in good health state and recommended drivers not to head for Constanta, as cars might bog down in snow again.

According to Palaz, Romanian authorities will begin snow-removal operations so that traffic on National Road 38 leading to Constanta be resumed.
