PETROPAVLOVSK, October 19 (Itar-Tass) —— Ferry service to the Kamchatka settlement of Lazo is halted because the level of the Kamchatka River has sharply gone down.
The settlement of about 400 residents, which has become isolated without the ferry link, has a month's stores of food and medicines. There are no supply problems for the population, the regional minister for special programmes and Cossacks' affairs, Sergei Khabarov, said.
To carry residents outside the settlement, boats cruise for 24 hours a day across the river, which is no deeper than 60 cm in the area now. Teams of the state inspection service for small vessels and rescuers ensure safety of the boat crossing. A camp is set up for the duty officers on the bank near the crossing site. Fourteen people used the boat service over the past 24 hours.
