Weather officials in France have issued orange (the second-highest alert on a four-tier scale) avalanche warnings for four departments in the Pyrenees mountains, including in Pyrénées-Atlantiques, Hautes-Pyrénées, Haute-Garonne, and Ariège. Associated transportation disruptions are possible in the affected areas in the coming days.
Individuals present in affected areas are advised to monitor local weather reports and updates from the European Avalanche Warning Services (EAWS), confirm travel reservations, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities (e.g. evacuation or shelter-in-place orders).
