Yosemite National Park closed indefinitely after record-breaking snowfall

Yosemite National Park will stay closed indefinitely after record snowfall.

The popular tourist destination was due to reopen on Wednesday (1 March) but will remain closed as 15ft of snow is covering some of the roads.

Yosemite is located in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains and broke its snow record in recent days, with 40 inches on the ground, passing the previous high of 36 inches in 1969.

There is currently no word as to when the park will reopen, or be safe again for visitors.
