Madrid Residents Play in Snow After Major Storm

Heavy snow from Storm Filomena caused the closure of 650 roads closed and left people trapped in their cars overnight in Madrid, Spain, into January 9.

According to the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET), Madrid was one of several Spanish regions on red alert for snow, which El Pais reported was a historic occurrence.
