RT, 10 Jan 2021
Scores of people in #Madrid neglected calls by the authorities to stay home and flocked outside to engage in winter activities, as the Spanish capital was paralyzed by the biggest snowfall in half a century, leaving three dead.
Storm Filomena, which buried Madrid under a record 50 centimeters of snow on Friday, became a disaster for the city.

The blizzard caused at least three fatalities in the city and nearby areas, Interior Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska said on Saturday. A man and a woman drowned in a car after it was swept away by a swollen river, while a homeless person froze to death.
