Thirty nuns could be liberated yesterday after their monastery was shut down for ten days from the outside world.
The Marienparadies Monastery is located in Sankt Veit im Pongau, in Austria. The nuns had prayed for days for the relief workers, who finally got rid of the many snow and fallen trees.
Recalled that approximately 11,000 inhabitants and tourists from the outside world have been cut off mainly in the west of the country.
Many important roads and passages have been blocked by the persistent snow and the avalanche danger. In Tirol today, code 5 applies for avalanche danger, the highest level that rarely occurs. This weekend there were already three deaths in avalanches in the Alpine country, a fourth is still missing.
