A storm that hit north Lebanon over the course of 24 hours piled the highlands with snow Thursday, blocking off roads, forcing schools to close and causing power cuts in multiple areas.The flurries blanketed areas in the north below 1,300 meters of altitude with a thick layer, as temperatures dropped below zero degrees Celsius.The snow, which reached down to areas of 1,000 meters of altitude, was the most severe in villages above the 1,400 meter mark, forming a layer 30 centimeters thick along a trail starting from Tannourine and passing through Bsharri to Ehden, on to Dinnieh and the Akkar mountains.
