A station of psychological help was opened for residents of Tuva’s capital, where emergencies ministry’s specialists work round-the-clock to help people in a state of shock. Over 100 people spent last night at the station. This is less than on the night of the quake, which made people flee their houses. The minister noted that psychological problems of the people, who had gone through such an experience for the first time, still remained. A lot of people are afraid from getting back to their apartment, fearing new earth tremors.
