GORNO-ALTAISK, December 30 (Itar-Tass) —— The appraisal of quake aftereffects in Kyzyl, the capital of Tuva, will continue through January 15. The quake occurred on December 27, 100 kilometers away from the city.
A commission will check up the condition of homes, public utilities, administrative and social buildings, a source in the city administration told Itar-Tass on Friday.
The initial evaluation was done immediately after the quake, and a more thorough examination of buildings in the city with a population of 110,000 was ordered.
In the words of Yeniseiskaya TGK Executive Director Yevgeny Zhadovets, the Kyzyl thermal power plant did not sustain significant damage in the latest earthquake.
“There are some cracks in panel seams and brick walls but they cannot impede the power plant operation. The personnel have tightened control over the condition of the power plant equipment,” he told Itar-Tass on Friday.
Emergency Situations Minister Sergei Shoigu ordered a group of experts to evaluate the damage. The Kyzyl thermal power plant was included in the list of inspected facilities due to its strategic significance.
