At least 21 people were frozen to death in a heavy snowstorm which swept through seven provinces in Mongolia since Monday, said the Mongolian General Authority for Emergency Management (GAEM) Wednesday.

Now the GAEM is still in search of 51 people who got lost in the snowstorm.

In the eastern province of Suhbaatar, the wind speed had once reached 40 meters per second.

The snowstorm has also caused damage to buildings and electronic infrastructure, according to the GAEM.

Snowstorms usually occur in spring in Mongolia.
