[CBC뉴스] 스페인 마드리드의 주민들은 9일(현지시간) 수십 년 만에 가장 큰 폭설을 맞이했다. 몇몇 주민들은 스노보드를 타고 길을 내려가거나 눈싸움을 즐기기도 하는 등 다양한 모습을 보였다.
Madrid residents put on their skis and snow shoes to enjoy the city's biggest snowfall in decades on Saturday (January 9).
Some used the freak blizzard to snowboard down the road or pelt each other with snowballs.
Four people died in Spain as Storm Filomena caused travel chaos across the country, forcing authorities to mobilise troops to rescue trapped motorists.
Rescue services reached 1,500 people trapped in cars, while skiers glided down Gran Via, normally one of the busiest streets in the capital.
The State Meteorological Agency said it was the heaviest snowfall in Madrid since 1971, while José Miguel Viñas, a meteorologist from Spanish National Radio, said that between 25 cm and 50 cm (10-20 inches) had fallen in the capital, which he said made it the largest snowfall since 1963.
