PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, December 24 (Itar-Tass) — Air traffic resumes at the airport of Kamchatka’s regional centre of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Air communication between Kamchatka and the mainland was stopped earlier on Monday because of a heavy snowfall, and was reopened at 7 am Moscow time, sources from the airport’s airfield control service told Tass.
Meanwhile, a powerful snow cyclone coming from Japan still hovers over southern Kamchatka, but it is gradually subsiding, according to the regional meteorological service. Schools have been closed in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, and traffic is impeded on city roads.
Transport communication with four settlements in the suburbs of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky has been restored. However, drivers are strongly advised not to use their cars for a while.
Up to 30 percent of the monthly norm of snow has fallen in the city. Snow cover depth has reached 70 centimeters. According to weathermen, weather conditions will improve in the south of the peninsula on Tuesday.
