PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, January 27. /ITAR-TASS/. A warning is announced in Russian Far East’s Kamchatka peninsula, a strong cyclone with stormy winds and snow blizzards is coming to the peninsula, the Kamchatka Hydrometeorological Centre told Itar-Tass on Monday.
The cyclone moving from the Pacific Ocean to the Bering Sea will have its impact on eastern Kamchatka already within a few hours. In the south of the territory, including Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, stronger winds packed to 22 meters per second are forecast, the weather forecasting centre said.
Ust-Kamchatsk and Olyutor districts of the territory are forecast to be the hardest hits of the cyclone. Snow blizzard, ice slick and harder traffic are forecast along with stronger winds up to 27 meters per second.
The Kamchatka territorial branch of the Ministry of Emergency Situations recommended residents of these territories to limit trips outside settlements. “Tourist groups and hunters should wait for bad weather to change for the better in settlements,” the press service of the regional Hydrometeorological centre said.
Weather forecasters noted that the impact of the cyclone will be strong in Kamchatka for no less than a day.
