MOSCOW, November 30 (Itar-Tass) — A cyclone bringing snowfalls has left more than 12,000 people without electricity in Russia’s northern Pskov and Leningrad regions, sources from the regional departments of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations told Tass on Friday.
“Electricity supply was partially disrupted at 8:14 am Moscow time in 13 districts of the Pskov region. Electricity was cut off to 408 settlements with the population of about 6,500 people,” the sources said. Repair work is underway there.
Snowfalls have caused blackouts in the Leningrad region as well. Sixty-eight settlements with the population of over 6,000 people have remained without electricity supply in four districts of the region, the sources said. A total of 185 transforming substations have been cut out, but all socially important facilities keep functioning on reserve supply equipment. Repair brigades work to restore electricity, the sources said.
