VLADIVOSTOK, December 5 (Itar-Tass) — Electric power supply of the Primorsky Territory settlements that were cut off from the network because of a strong cyclone has been restored on Wednesday, the press centre of the regional administration told Itar-Tass.
“The experts are examining the repaired equipment and assess the network voltage,” the press service of the Primorsky Electrical Networks – a branch of the Far East Distribution Grid Company Open Joint-Stock Company (OAO DRSK) specified, noting that 24 repair brigades totalling 100 people were involved in the emergency restoration efforts.
More than 100 power outages in 9 districts of the region have been registered over the two days of the bad weather. The main cause of the emergency was broken wires because of wet snow.
The severe cyclone hit the Primorsky Territory on December 3. More than the monthly norm of precipitation in the form of rain and wet snow fell in a day in a number of districts, including Vladivostok.
According to recent reports, the cyclone has already moved away from the territory. At present, the life support systems of the affected settlements have been completely restored and are functioning normally. The ferry service to the islands of the Peter the Great Gulf and the long-distance bus service in all directions have been restored. Vladivostok airport is functioning normally.
The stabilisation of the situation has made it possible to lift the alert regime, which was in effect in the region during the cyclone.
