PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, October 22 (Itar-Tass) —— The transport service is resumed to Kamchatka's settlement of Lazo of about 400 people, which was isolated when the level of the Kamchatka River went down too low, halting the ferry service, a source at the Kamchatavtodor road service company told Itar-Tass.
The river in the crossing area rose to the level suitable for the ferry work, the source said.
However, it can carry only light transport.
Heavy machines are brought to the area to do additional work to clear and deepen the river bed.
The press service of the Kamchatka regional government reported on October 19 that the ferry service to Lazo was halted.
There were no supply problems for the population. According to the regional minister for social programmes, Sergei Khabarov, the settlement had stores of food and medicines for a month.
