Comments: This wave of bitter cold continues its invasion of Morocco and a significant decrease in temperature was confirmed by the spokesman for the Communications Department at the Directorate of Meteorology, the significant drop in temperature will be felt in northern , east, south and in the mountainous areas. In anticipation of the severe cold wave the Interior Ministry and the Royal Gendarmerie and the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity launched a special program of solidarity for the benefit of population groups that suffer greatly from cold waves , especially Douars mountainous and remote areas. This assistance program has been launched in some heavily affected areas from last week. Several families received blankets and food and appropriate equipment for the winter. This wave of frost and snow has caused economic losses and livelihoods due to the isolation of several areas. Moreover, traffic was paralyzed and traffic accidents have occurred. The Ministry of Equipment and Transport has been mobilized to lift the isolation of remote areas and continues to launch periodic newsletters on road conditions and weather warnings.
