VLADIVOSTOK, January 13 (Itar-Tass) —— A 200-kilometer road between the town of Okha and Nogliki was blocked due to a heavy snowfall, which the cyclone brought to northern Sakhalin. The traffic on the road has been blocked for three days.
The road will be opened not earlier than in the evening on December 15, the press service of the emergency situation department in the Sakhalin Region reported.
The cyclone, which grows in a hurricane, put a spell on the Sea of Okhotsk, the North Kuriles, Kamchatka and Kolyma. The weathermen reported that the winds may reach 35-40 meters per second in these regions overnight to Saturday. A storm warning was announced in these regions. The waves reached 8-9 meters in the Sea of Okhotsk and the Bering Sea. A quick icing of ships is expected amid the frosts of 20 degrees below zero.
