PARIS (AP) — About 36,000 households across France are still without power after Storm Ana hit the country.

Enedis, the body in charge of France's electricity network, said in a statement Tuesday that more than 1,500 agents are being deployed to help restore power.

Strong winds and heavy rainfall wreaked havoc with transportation in various parts of the country Monday. Northern France was the region most affected by the snow and wintry weather, with 20,000 homes without electricity.

The national meteorological service, Meteo France, said the worst of the bad weather should be over soon, but still warned of a high risk of avalanches in the southern Alps.
