BARNAUL, February 23 (Itar-Tass) - The Emergencies Ministry's Altai regional department issued a snowstorm warning on Saturday.
Long snowstorms with a wind of up to 27 m/sec will hit the region on February 24 and 25, the department warns.
Drivers are asked not to go in personal cars and to be very careful on roads if they drive.
The Altai Territory will be attacked by cyclones that will come to West Siberia from Russia's European part and Central Asian regions, the regional meteorological centre told Itar-Tass.
Snowy weather since early January more than once closed federal and local roads in the Altai Territory. The snow level and water reserves in the entire region exceed the norm by 150-200 and even 300 percent in some areas. According to the Emergencies Ministry's forecast, more than 50 residential areas in the region may be flooded next spring.
