Did you guys here that people died? There was shortage of gas (I thought we were exporters of gas??) and food supplies?

And yeah, people died during the extreme weather conditions. Isolated villages were cut off because of the snow and cold and some did not have supplies to last more than a week. Not sure what the total death toll was but I heard something like 15-20. Same thing also happened in Europe in places like Ukraine, Serbia, Romania, etc. :(

It's very sad to hear about all the people who died or got stranded for days without supplies or gas. Yes Omeyma we're one of the world's biggest exporters of Natural Gas, yet there are Algerians who die of cold due to the lack of access to it.

They had a small reportage about it on Echourouk channel if anybody watches it, some even went to other wilayas and had to stay there for more than 3 days!
What frustrates me as well, you know the Dz news, they show how eldarak elwattani is helping those people by giving them food supplies, and helping the homeless? When in fact loads of people are suffering!

Yes it is very nice, It's in Bechar.

and France. Heard that 30 elderly people died like 2 years ago.
There are people with experience and people with opinions. Listen to one, smile at the other.

Wow .. I would have never ever expected snow to fall in Bechar ! But then again, the pictures I posted are even further south and even more isolated in the jersey so I guess I shouldn't be shocked
