The situation at the Shipka Pass is complicated by heavy snowfall.

Snow plows clear in a few minutes, but the snow covers the road extremely quickly.

The appeal is for drivers to drive through the pass with vehicles prepared for winter conditions.

There are currently no data on blocked cars.

The snow is about 40 cm.

"In the last 12 hours there has been intense snowfall.

The passage is passable in winter conditions.

The wind is getting stronger, but the snow is not stopping", commented a representative of the road maintenance company, reports Nova TV. 

A warning code of the first degree for strong wind and snowfall is in effect throughout the country, except for the Yambol and Burgas regions.

Winter is upon us in full force
