A French Alps snow storm has left 15,000 cars stranded and trapped thousands of tourists in their vehicles. The popular European ski region is in chaos following a long-awaited snow storm. Emergency workers have had to establish makeshift shelters for thousands. Already, a 27-year-old man was killed Saturday when his car skidded off the road and fell 200 meters. Two buses reportedly crashed, causing six-mile tailbacks. Over 2,000 people were also stuck at the Chambéry airport. France has declared its second-highest weather alert and urged people to avoid travel.
