Explosives Trigger Avalanche In Europe


We might be getting snow here in KELOLAND, but what we have is nothing compared to parts of Europe.

Parts of Austria, Germany and Switzerland have gotten so much snow that an army helicopter dropped 265 pounds of explosives on the mountains to trigger an avalanche.

This was to try and reopen a main road and railroad so people could get back to their homes.

Austria has seen the heaviest snowfall in decades, resulting in roads becoming unpassable and several towns being cut off.
