Renewed snowfall and ice formation forced the closure of roads across the country again Sunday, after more than a week of similar traffic disruptions due to the powerful storm that ripped through Lebanon last week.Roads were also blocked due to snowfall Sunday morning in the southern Hasbaya villages of Kfeir, Khalwat, Shebaa, Kfar Shuba and Kfar Hammam, the NNA said.Snowfall during the night also led to road closures in the northern Dinnieh region, prompting municipality authorities and civil defense teams to work on clearing the roads from snow and ice.Temperatures sank as low as -7 Celsius in areas of Akkar, as ice and snow kept the Kafartoun-Beit Jaafar, Qobeyyat-Hermel and Fneydeq-Qamouaa-Hermel roads shut.
