KALUGA, December 23 (Itar-Tass) — As many as 980 people, including 198 children, were left without heating supplies amid the 20-degree frosts over the broken heating pipe in the town Kondrovo in the Kaluga Region, the press service of the Kaluga regional emergency situation department told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
The press service reported that the water pressure dropped at 09:20 Moscow time in the central heating system in Kondrovo over the water leakage from the reverse mainline. “Twelve emergency workers and three units of machinery, five teams of utility workers, 25 people and seven units of machinery were involved in the cleanup of the emergency situation,” the press service said.
