ULAN-UDE, April 24 (Itar-Tass) — About 2,500 northern residents in the Trans-Bailkal Territory were left without electricity on Tuesday after a wet snowfall.
Power supply was cut off to the villages of Chara, Kyust-Kemda and Udokan, a source at the Russian Emergencies Ministry's regional department told Itar-Tass.
The emergency cutoff left without electricity a school and a kindergarten in Chara and a kindergarten in Kyust-Kemda.
There are 12 patients in the Kalarsky district hospital, which is supplied with electricity from a reserve power source. All the boiler rooms in Chara also have reserve power supply.
A total of 2,522 people reside in the villages.
Sixteen people are repairing the damaged lines to resume the power supply.
