Snow Stops School in Golan


The Golan Regional Council decided, Sunday afternoon, to stop studies at the Avital Regional School in Kibbutz Marom Golan and return its students to their homes because of the snow that had started to fall. The council was concerned about roads being blocked by the snowstorm.

Earlier, the Mount Hermon recreational site was closed to skiers and other visitors because of a forecast of fog to accompany the snow. Snow is also expected in Golan and Galilee areas above 1,000 meters, where the temperature is expected to get close to freezing.
