PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATKA, March 3 (Itar-Tass) - The powerful cyclone that raged over Japan and Sakhalin has hit southern Kamchatka with winds of up to 45 m/sec. Gusts of wind of such power are recorded in the southernmost part of the peninsula in the Cape Lopatka area, the Kamchatka meteorological service told Itar-Tass.
There is no heavy precipitation after the cyclone lost some strength over Sakhalin.
Nevertheless, the local anti-avalanche centre has warned about avalanche danger in the mountains. Slopes of mountains and volcanoes will remain dangerous in the Yelizovo, Ust-Kamchatsk and Milkovo districts from March 4 to 6. Snow masses may fall from the volcanoes Vilyuchinsky, Kozelsky, Koryaksky and Avachinsky.
Tourists, hunters and travelers should not set out for mountain routes, the centre said.
Organizations that operate in mountainous areas are recommended to take measures for personnel safety.
The Kamchatka Hydro-Meteorological Centre also issued a storm warning for the south of the Bering Sea, the northwest of the Pacific and areas near the central and eastern Aleutian Islands, where a storm with eight-ten-metre waves is expected on March 3.
There have been no reports about emergencies or disruption of the work of life-support systems in residential areas.
Air service between the peninsula and the mainland is not halted. All the flights are carried out according to schedule, the traffic control service at Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky's Yelizovo airport said.
