Heavy snowfall has hindered car traffic in the Pyrenees in France and sometimes brought it to a standstill.

The Pyrenees Meteorological Service reported that several hundred cars were stuck on a snow-covered road between Andorra and France on Sunday evening after the Puymorens tunnel was closed.

Cars also slipped off the road on other connections and progress was slow.

The snowfall should initially continue, there was a storm warning also because of the danger of avalanches.

In other lower-lying regions in southwest France, warnings were issued against flooding because of the precipitation.
