ABBOTTABAD: Heavy snowfall in Galiyat, Abbottabad, and Murree Hills has cut off many road-links here, Geo News reported.

According to details, work to reopen Murree Road was underway.

On top of bone-marrow-freezing temperature, consumers, already confined to their homes, were hit hard by low gas pressure and frequent power breakdowns.

In Abbottabad the mercury dropped due to continuous snowfall while in the Galiyat it was way below the freezing point.

A number of link roads were also reported to have been impassable for sometime now.

Though, there has been a letup in precipitation but the glacial winds are still deep-freezing the cloudy highlands.

Other frigid zones of the country are also facing subzero temperatures.
