MOSCOW, August 29 (Itar-Tass) — Typhoon Bolaven’s influence on Primorsky Territory is weakening, the press service of the Emergencies Main Directorate for Primorsky Territory told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“The situation is stable. Typhoon Bolaven’s influence is gradually weakening,” an official of the press service said.
The typhoon was accompanied by rushes of wind at the speed of 33 metres per second.
According to chief of the Territory’s emergency directorate Alexander Agafonov, “due to timely preventive measures, including timely informing, nobody was hurt.”
Electricity is being supplied to all settlements. “Repair units of Primorsky Territory Power Lines are dealing with restoring power system disturbance,” Agafonov added.
The works involved 163 people and 53 units of equipment.
Earlier in the day, the Far Eastern Railway’s press service told Itar-Tass that Typhoon Bolaven made changes to the traffic schedule on the railway section in Primorsky Territory.
The hurricane with the speed of 30-35 m/s knocked down foreign debris on power lines that led to the failure that affected the movement of passenger, suburban and freight trains, the press service said.
All services of the Far Eastern Railway worked hard. Repair and fire-fighting units coped with the consequences of the typhoon in Primorsky Territory: they took away fallen trees and damaged advertising constructions.
“Bridges to the Russky Island and across the Zolotoy Rog Bay have been opened for traffic,” the official said.
