    Snow and freeze in Romania


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Valeriu Gonta, of Iasi, Romania, took these pictures of heavy snowfall from his dorm room balcony at 2 o'clock this afternoon. 'The snow covered the ice in some places. We had four days of freeze and several homeless people died as a result of cold weather,' he says. 'Some parts of Danube froze last night, even if the river is quite salted.' Gonta says the whole country is affected, especially the southern cities.
