A quarter of a million people in Slovenia still don't have electricity. Numerous regional roads are also blocked by trees and small villages have been cut off from the rest of the country by fallen trees.

Authorities today are struggling to restore order. This has been hampered by the icy conditions all around the country. Rescue workers say it's dangerous climbing poles, dangerous to be in the woods, and overall risky.

Around 75% of schools are closed. Prime minister Alenka Bratušek said it may take a few days to restore order.

Some successes have been reported: electricity to Vrhnika has been restored. Some areas, including Postojna, have been without electricity since Friday. The defense minister has called an emergency meeting with electricity distributors.
