MAKHACHKALA, February 7 (Itar-Tass) —— Abnormal frosts in Dagestan created problems for the commercial seaport in Makhachkala. Vessels are being towed away from the port zone to the bay due to the high concentration of ice, Dagestani Hydro-Meteorology and Environmental Monitoring Center head Pyotr Postavik said on Tuesday.
“The port zone is fully covered with ice, and the ice shell is up to 15-25 centimeters thick,” he said.
Postavik forecasted a new cold wave within days. Temperatures will drop to minus 30-32 degrees Celcius in the north, and minus 18-20 degrees in Makhachkala. Weathermen say that warmer conditions could be expected after February 10.
