Snowfall which began Monday morning in the mountainous areas of Alborz Province has turned Karaj white and most of the towns, villages and hamlets in the province. De-icing salt is being sprayed on some provincial roads as a preventive measure, Alef News Agency quoted Hassan Modir Rusta, an official of Karaj Municipality as saying. Autumn snow also fell on some northernmost parts of Tehran including the mountainous Evin, Darakeh and Darband districts. Due to heavy snow on the popular Karaj-Chalus road and extreme weather conditions, people have been urged to avoid unnecessary trips to the Caspian region.
