MOSCOW, March 26 (Itar-Tass) – The Ministry for Emergency Situations has put its departments in the Volga and the Urals regions on alert as heavy snow blizzards have been moving from the Central Federal District southeast.
The cyclone which brought heaps of snow has been subsiding in the Central Federal District, but the EMERCOM departments in the Volga and Urals regions should be put on alert, Deputy chief of the EMERCOM National Center for managing crisis situations Sergei Miroshnichenko declared at an Intercom conference on Tuesday.
He has asked the heads of the Volga and Urals regional EMERCOM centers to check all local life support facilities, take account of the equipment and forces available and conduct permanent monitoring of the situation on motorways and in settlements.

In 14 districts of Central Russia EMERCOM forces are in condition of top readiness, and in the Kursk region, worst hit by snow blizzards, they have been operating in an emergency regime, Miroshnichenko said.
