KHABAROVSK, December 4 (Itar-Tass) — The cyclone and stormy winds have disrupted the Vanino-Kholmsk ferryboat line on Tuesday. All ferryboats are taking a shelter in the bays off the coast of the mainland.
The Khabarovsk, Primorsky Territory, Jewish Autonomous Area and the Amur Region are under the impact of the cyclone with strong blizzards with the winds of up to 20-25 meters per second.
The shuttle bus traffic on the intercity routes from Khabarovsk to the cities in the Primorsky Territory and the Jewish Autonomous Area was suspended over snow drifts and black frost on the federal highways Ussuri and Amur.
The traffic jams have stretched out for many kilometres on the roads in Khabarovsk, the traffic is complicated over the buses and heavy-duty trucks standing across the streets. Over 30 road accidents occurred on Tuesday morning. Several people were injured in the road accidents.
Despite the bad weather, the Khabarovsk airport provides for the arrivals and departures of most scheduled air flights, but several flights arrive and depart with the delays.
The power utilities, territorial authorities and emergency services in the Far East have intensified their work.
