PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, December 31 (Itar-Tass) – A storm warning has been issued in the Kamchatka territory, as a powerful cyclone is approaching the peninsula from the direction of Japan.
The authorities have made recommendations to the residents of the territory’s administrative center, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, as well as to the population of the Ust-Bolsheretsk and Yelizovo districts to refrain from leaving town unless necessary.
A spokesman for the Kamchatka territory branch of the federal Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense /EMERCOM/ told Itar-Tass the storm will start pounding the southern areas of the Kamchatka peninsula overnight to Tuesday, January 1.
Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and the Yelizovo district will most likely see blizzards accompanied by a wind blowing at 23 to 28 meters per second.
Forecasts speak of gale with the gusts of 45 to 48 meters per second on the southwest and southeast coasts of Kamchatka. Snowstorms, the aggregation of snow banks and a considerable deterioration of visibility will complicate traffic on the automobile roads.
Tourists and hunters have been advised to stay away from activities in the mountainous areas where a risk of avalanching is high.
The Kamchatka Center for Hydrometeorology predicts a worsening of the weather situation within the next few hours. The blizzards will unlikely stop before Wednesday, January 2.
