In the north-east of the country there is also a

the morning

, triggered by freezing drizzle.

In addition, it remains frosty cold.

During the day, announcing the DWD in the mountains, at the edge of the Alps and in the far east

Snow roller causes chaos: Even landslides are possible - after the death drama in the forest, there are now new warnings

Update from January 15, 12:19 p.m.:

The

snow roller

causes

real traffic

chaos

on the

edge of the Alps

, in the

Allgäu

, in the

Black Forest

and Bavarian Oberland: In the morning there was

a traffic jam of around 500 vehicles

on

Autobahn 96 near Lindau

because some trucks got stuck had.

Between

Kempten and Geisenried

, almost 40 of them couldn't

move

at all on the federal highway.

The police in the

Allgäu

asked "to urgently avoid all journeys that are not absolutely necessary".

Truck

drivers in

particular

should therefore put on

snow chains

and wait, according to the request of the emergency services, but they hardly found any parking spaces at the rest stops.

On the

national road 317 in Stühlingen

spending had dozens of them the night on Friday in their vehicles because the snow from the streets could not be eliminated.

It was already jammed in the

Schwarzwald-Baar district

- the traffic chaos continued into the

Waldshut district

.

The

emergency services also had to struggle with chaotic conditions

around

Freiburg

: roads had to be closed, buses replaced the trams.

On Friday, the police again issued an urgent

warning

not to underestimate

the dangers that the

masses of snow

bring - and this

warning

does not only apply to

road traffic

.

Numerous trees could not withstand the snow loads sufficiently and thus also become

dangerous for

pedestrians

.

This is also proven by a tragic accident in

the Lörrach district

: near Wittlingen, a 72-year-old woman was walking her dog when she killed a tree.

Her son found her very hypothermic in the forest on Thursday evening.

Although she could still be reanimated by the police on site, she died a little later in the hospital.

second highest avalanche warning level

because

there is fear of a

landslide

due to the masses of snow.

In the course of Friday morning,

up to 20 centimeters of fresh snow should fall

, especially in

southwest Germany and in the foothills of the Alps

.

In the

southwest of Baden-Württemberg

you can expect up to 50 centimeters, in

Oberallgäu to Garmisch-Partenkirchen

even 60 centimeters of fresh snow.

For the

districts of Lindau, Oberallgäu, Ostallgäu and Garmisch-Partenkirchen
