KRASNODAR, January 27 (Itar-Tass) — The disconnection of electrical equipment of the Southwest power grid occurred in Novorossiisk Friday morning due to strong winds with gusts up to 33 metres per second.
“As a result, about 100 thousand residents of the city and suburbs remained without electricity supply,” the city administration told Itar-Tass.
“Electrical substations were de-energised in three districts: Tsemdolina, Raevskaya and some districts of the city,” an administration official said.
