GORNO-ALTAISK, December 28 (Itar-Tass) — A convoy of EMERCOM vehicles has arrived in Tuva from Krasnoyarsk on Friday morning. The convoy delivered stoves and food products for residents of the settlement of Khovu-Aksy left without heat because of heat supply station breakdowns.
Rescuers in eight vehicles delivered 190 stoves, 21 tonnes of canned fish, 40 tonnes of flour and four tonnes of rice and buckwheat -- a total of over 65 tonnes of food products, a source at the Russian Emergencies Ministry's department in the republic told Itar-Tass on Friday.
The aid convoy the same day will leave Kyzyl to Khovu-Aksy, the administrative centre of the Chedi-Kholsky district.
Earlier, an EMERCOM plane delivered heaters and electric generators to Tuva. The cargo weighed a total of about 30 tonnes.
After a series of breakdowns at the heat and electric power plant in Khovu-Aksy since December 20, out of more than 3,700 residents of the settlement, 3,300 were evacuated. More than 600 of the people stay at temporary accommodation stations, and the rest are in homes of their relatives.
Three points to provide humanitarian aid for the population were opened in the settlement on Thursday. There are also other stations to give money, food products and fuel to people.
Repair work at the heat supply plant has been continuing for more than a week. The boilers do not start working yet. Heat systems are damaged in many flats because of frosts. There are 1,140 flats supplied with heat from the central system. Radiators and pipes must be changed in 80 percent of them.
