PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, March 20 (Itar-Tass) - A powerful cyclone that came from Japan's shores has hit the southern areas of the Kamchatk Peninsula with a gale-force wind and heavy blizzards. A storm warning was issued.
It is snowing heavily throughout the Peninsula's south and wind velocity mounted up to 27 metres per second. Visibility on motor roads is limited.
