PERM, July 20 (Itar-Tass) —— Some 3,500 people in 23 populated localities are still cut off electricity supplies in the Perm Territory after a storm on July 18, a spokesman for the territorial emergencies administration told Itar-Tass on Friday.
According to the spokesman, it is planned to finish repair operations and resume electricity supplies during the day.
According to earlier reports, one person died and ten more were injured in the storm. On Wednesday, the area was hit by a heavy storm with torrential rains, thunderstorms, hails and wind gusts of up to 20-25 meters per second. Eyewitnesses said strong winds were tearing roofs off buildings and uprooting trees. The storm cut electricity supplies to the Sivinsky, Vereshchaginsky, Ilyinsky and Nytvensky districts leaving 260 settlements with an overall population of more than 118,000 people without electricity.
A spokesman for the territorial administration said that local insurance companies were ready to promptly pay insurance benefits.
