State of emergency now in 23 municipalities A state of emergency is now in effect in 23 municipalities across the country, while the traffic ground to a halt in Belgrade this afternoon due to snow. Although the Electrical Network of Serbia (EMS) said earlier this week it was delivering record amounts of electricity via a stable system that did not require any power cuts, the authorities today appealed on the citizens to reduce the amount of electricity and other energy they are consuming. Since even lower temperatures have been forecast for the coming days, the authorities also expect the emergency measures to include an order for big industrial consumers to work in a reduced capacity. MUP Emergency Sector chief Predrag Maric told B92 that roads in Serbia were all currently open for the traffic, although affected by snow, and that the situation was now "best in the south".
