South Korea and Hong Kong shiver as snow disrupts travel

South Korea and Hong Kong shiver as snow disrupts travel

The South Korean island of Jeju has seen its biggest snowfall in three decades, causing hundreds of flights to be cancelled. Jeju is a popular holiday destination and thousands of visitors are reported to have been left stranded. All 517 flights scheduled for Sunday were cancelled, as well as about 60 on Monday, following 11cm (4.3in) of snow.

In Hong Kong, residents shivered in three degrees Celsius, the lowest temperature there in nearly 60 years. “It is very cold and windy over Hong Kong. People are advised to put on warm clothes and to avoid prolonged exposure to wintry winds,” read a statement on a city government website (BBC News, 2016).
