Up to 3 m (10 feet) of snow fell in a mountain resort in Valcea, Romania, in 7 days to March 28, 2021. This county usually sees the heaviest snow and precipitation around May.
Heavy snow blanketed the mountain resort Varful Lui Roman in Valcea County. The owner captured images and footage as the thick snow left him surprised.
According to local media, it snowed daily for a week on Varful Roman, which stands at 1 700 m (5 577 feet) altitude). The owner estimated that it might take up to six months before the mountain snow melts.
"You can't see the roof [and] the fence. We jump over it. How can we open another gate? We jump over it. The door is no longer visible," a resident said as snow engulfed his home.
Heavy precipitation, in general, is usually the heaviest at around May in the area.
