Three dead in Ireland snowstorm

Ireland snowstorm
Two more people died in Ireland, bringing the total number of deaths to three in the country since it was hit by a powerful snowstorm about a week ago, reported local media on Sunday.

According to the reports, a man in his 30s died in a road crash in the country's east county of Meath on early Sunday morning while an 83-year-old woman was killed in a house fire in the central part of Longford on Saturday night.

Both causes of the deaths were not mentioned in the reports. But delays in rescue due to the inaccessibility to many places in the country because of heavy accumulations of snow could be a contributing factor, not to mention the slippery road conditions and a possible short-circuit or candle triggered fire as a result of a massive blackout caused by the blizzard in the country.
