Nature often shows its power to people. The world of science is not static, but against the force of the elements humanity is powerless. The website polezno.kg gathered information about 10 of the most powerful snowfalls in the history, which caused great damage to major cities. Hours of heavy snowfalls have led to the fact that traffic on the roads stopped, power lines stopped working and people could not get home and work.
