Hi! I'm having trouble in translating this phrase: "[FONT="]Se queda solo en la casa, encerrado por la tormenta de nieve [/FONT]" The context is the following: there's a man in a house, who cannot go outside because there's a fierce snow storm blowing. I thought of translating it as: He stays alone in the house, not being able to go out because of the snow storm. I wanted to know if there is an expression or a word for "encerrado", meaning that he is in that condition because of external reasons, not because he wants to. I looked up the definitions of "lock" and other similar words, but I think they don't give the meaning I'm looking for. Thank you very much!
