PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, March 3 (Itar-Tass) – The transport communications are cut with the district centre Ust-Kamchatsk in eastern Kamchatka over a heavy snow cyclone that came from the Sakhalin coast to the Kamchatka Peninsula, chief press officer of the Kamchatka emergency situation department Yulia Ananyeva told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
The 145-kilometre-long section of the Klyuchi-Ust-Kamchatsk, along which the ground traffic is provided with Ust-Kamchatsk, is closed for all types of vehicles over the zero visibility and a strong snow blizzard until the noon on March 4. Heavy snowfalls are not reported in this district, but hurricane winds whirled up a snow blizzard, which made the traffic on the road dangerous, she said.
About 4,600 people live in Ust-Kamchatsk. The settlement is provided with all necessary supplies. The life-supporting systems operate without disruptions.
The cyclone with squally winds went to the coast of Kamchatka overnight to March 3 and determines the bad weather in southern districts of the territory. In the southernmost end of the peninsula the gusts of wind reach up to 45 metres per second. The anti-avalanche centre declared a high avalanche hazard in the highland districts until March 6. A storm with the waves of up to 8-9 metres high is raging in the sea off the eastern coast of the peninsula.
No emergency accidents were reported on the peninsula over the natural disaster, the emergencies department said.
