Many buried by avalanche in France

Many buried by avalanche in France
Several people are feared buried after an avalanche struck a busy slope on Tignes ski resort in the French Alps, according to French authorities.

A rescue mission has been initiated. It is not yet clear whether anyone has been injured or killed, but according to eyewitnesses, many people are buried in the snow.

The alarm went off just after 10 am Tuesday.

The rescue work is difficult because of poor visibility, which means that helicopters can't be used, reports Le Figaro. Instead, rescuers are on their way on foot.

In mid-February Tignes was hit by a 400 meter wide avalanche. Four people were killed in that avalanche.
