- I spent the entire night near the stove, putting woods in the fire, and I watched for sheep from the wolves. The bad weather sometimes caught me in the mountains, but I don't remember the weather like this - said one of the locals

Rajko Filipovic from Zagarac, who is with his family, is on Lukavica, 30 kilometers from Niksic, hopes that the roads will be cleared soon.

- I spent the entire night near the stove, putting woods in the fire, and I watched for sheep from the wolves. The bad weather sometimes caught me in the mountains, but I don't remember the weather like this.

- It was a disaster. The blizzard stopped around midnight, and the sun was up this morning. Everything was frozen so I can step on the surface of it and I can visit the cattle. So far everything is fine - said Filipovic to "Vijesti" in a phone call.

With him are his wife and two underage children of 14 and 16 years old, who came to spend the weekend with their father.

- The oldest son and the neighbor tried to reach us yesterday, but they got stuck, so the firefighters saved them. It all ended up well, our friends tried to reach us but they couldn't due to the blizzard, snow, and wind. We have to stay here until the road is clear because I can't leave the cattle. We live from it.

- There is no moving around until the road is clear - said the man from Zagarac.

Around 80 cm of snow fell on Lukavica and an entire meter in some places.

A lot of houses lost electricity, which was solved.
