VIENNA, Austria (AP) -
Europe's second snowstorm this week piled drifts on tracks and roads Friday, slowing rail service, stranding motorists and causing hundreds of traffic accidents. At least four deaths were attributed to a week of icy weather.
Swirling snow and thick fog enveloped most of Italy, and Florence recorded nearly 10 inches of snow - the most it has seen in two decades. Temperatures in northern Italy dropped as low as minus-17 Celsius (1.4 Fahrenheit). A 22-year-old homeless man was found dead, apparently of exposure, in Rome's main railway station Wednesday.
