VLADIVOSTOK, February 6 (Itar-Tass) – A powerful cyclone approaching from the Yellow Sea will bring heavy snowfalls and gale-force winds to Russia’s Primorye, sources from the regional meteorological centre said on Wednesday.
It will reach the region at night, hitting it with snowfalls and winds up to 23 meters per second. In coastal areas winds may reach the speed of 30 meters per second.
“In the southeastern part of Primorye the amount of precipitation may reach a monthly norm,” the head of the regional meteorological service, Boris Kubai, said. Winds will intensify and snowdrifts will begin. Gale-force winds are expected in Vladivostok as well.
The cyclone will hover over the region more than 24 hours. Then it will continue moving northeast and will reach the southwestern part of the Sea of Okhotsk on Friday.
The regional department of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations has urged local residents to restrict travels outside their home settlements, and fishermen have been strongly advised to refrain from ice fishing.
