snow in the middle of August!

While there is torrential rain in the valleys, there is fresh snow on the mountains.

There was even fresh snow on the mountains of western Austria – in the middle of August.

The snow line temporarily dropped to 2000 meters, particularly affected were Vorarlberg, Tyrol and Salzburg.

Flood: The first rivers are already overflowing
Heavy rains in the night of Tuesday led to muckings and traffic disruptions in large parts of Austria. The flood pre-alarm was triggered in Steyr (Upper Austria) because the Enns is approaching a water level of five meters. In Carinthia, the railway line between Feldkirchen and Villach is interrupted at several points after mudslides and landslides.
