MURMANSK, March 23 (Itar-Tass) - The northern section of the Kola federal highway between Murmansk and the Russian-Norwegian border is still closed.
Traffic halted on the road on Friday morning due to bad weather conditions has not resumed yet. The snowstorm is continuing in the mountainous area. Road services cannot cope with the snow. Snowdrifts cover the road again shortly after it is cleared. Corridors are dug in the snow at some places.
The snowfall has closed regional roads. There are no links for two days to the energy workers' settlements of Teriberka and Tumanny on the eastern coast of the Barents Sea. It snowed overnight in Murmansk, which was in the centre of the cyclone raging over the entire northern part of the Kola Peninsula.
Roads in its southern part, including the Kola federal highway section, are opened. Despite the storm, life in the region continues as normal, a regional administration source told Itar-Tass.
Meteorologists expect the weather to improve on March 24.
