ATHENS, Greece - Snowfall and high winds disrupted transport across Greece Tuesday, canceling some domestic flights and confining ferries to port.

Snow blanketed the northern suburbs of Athens and the mountains surrounding the city, where motorists had to use chains. Snow also fell in many parts of the country, including the southern resort island of Crete, blocking mountain roads and causing temporary power cuts.

Winds of up to 100 kph (62 mph) lashed the Aegean Sea, forcing ferries to remain in port and canceling seven flights from Athens' Eleftherios Venizelos Airport to island destinations, officials said.
