SOFIA, Bulgaria — The Bulgarian government said Thursday that 260 of its towns and villages were blacked out in the last few days after ice and snow brought down pylons and power lines.

An announcement by the official BTA news agency said the authorities were working to restore electricity to many villages disrupted by the severe weather.

Some areas of Bulgaria and neighboring Romania have had more than 39 inches of snow in the last week.
