VLADIKAVKAZ 5 (Itar-Tass) —— A state of emergency have been imposed in the Mozdok district of Russia’s Caucasian republic of North Ossetia after torrential rains and stormy winds left more than 13,500 people without electricity supplies, a spokesman for the republican emergencies ministry told Itar-Tass on Monday.
The state of emergency will be lifted only after all clear up and repair operations are over.
The natural calamity damaged a total of 15 kilometres of low-voltage electricity lines. The village of Pavlodolskaya is entirely cut off electricity supplies. Electricity shortages are reported in another three settlements, including the district’s administrative centre, Mozdok. About 20 brigades are involved in clear up and repair operations.
Torrential rains started on Sunday night and were accompanied by stormy winds. An elderly woman was knocked down by the wind and later died of injuries.
