Misha will reach its climax on Saturday, bringing snow to areas as low as 1,700 meters above sea level.
The storm, coming from Greece, will continue until Thursday.
Later on Saturday, NNA explained that the four soldiers are from the North and “they were on their way there through the Hermel road when speeding and the heavy rain led to the flipping of their car and it broke into two parts.”
