[CBC뉴스] 한 마드리드 주민이 9일(현지시간) 티라노사우루스 공룡 의상을 입고 거리에서 노는 장면이 포착됐다.
애칭 렉시라는 이름을 가진 이 공룡은 눈 천사를 만들고 흰 옷을 입고 도시를 걸어 다녔다고 한다.
A Madrid resident saw the lighter side of a snowstorm in the Spanish capital on Saturday (January 9) by donning a T-Rex dinosaur costume to play in the streets.
Affectionately named Rexy, the dinosaur made snow angels and walked through the city, blanketed in white.
The Spanish government will send convoys carrying the COVID-19 vaccine and food supplies on Sunday to areas cut off by Storm Filomena which brought the heaviest snowfall in decades across central Spain and killed four people.
In the Madrid area, rescuers reached 1,500 people trapped in cars, while police broke up a large snowball fight after authorities appealed for citizens to stay at home for risk of accidents or spreading coronavirus.
Forecasters warned of dangerous conditions in the coming days, with temperatures expected to fall to up to minus 10 Celsius (14 Fahrenheit) next week and the prospect of snow turning to ice and damaged trees falling.
In Madrid, police cordoned off buildings with heavy loads of snow on the roof in case of accidents, but residents took to the streets in droves to enjoy the rare sight.
About 100 workers and shoppers have spent two nights sleeping at a shopping centre in Majahaonda, a town north of Madrid, after they were trapped by the blizzard on Friday (January 8).
The State Metereological Agency (Aemet) said up to 20-30 cm (7-8 inches) of snow fell in Madrid on Saturday (January 9), the most since 1971.
