VLADIVOSTOK, July 17 (Itar-Tass) - A tropical cyclone, which hit the Primorsky Territory from China, resulted in temporary disruptions in the operation of transport and several utility breakdowns in Vladivostok.
The electric power supplies were cut in seven residential houses over the wire breaks on the power line, the press service of the Vladivostok authorities told Itar-Tass on Wednesday. Now the teams of repairmen went to this area to eliminate the power outage. A morning trip of a passenger motorboat to the Peschany Peninsula was cancelled over stormy winds, but the traffic of motorboats was resumed already at 10:00 local time (03:00 Moscow time) according to the schedule. The traffic of city buses, trolleybuses and tramways, as well as the operations of the airport are maintained according to the schedule.
“The workers of the road maintenance service and the city search-and-rescue service are removing the fallen trees and are cleaning up the roads from stones and tree branches,” a source in the Vladivostok authorities said.
The tropical cyclone has hit the south of the Primorsky Territory and Vladivostok overnight to Wednesday. The cyclone brought heavy rains and high winds with the gusts of up to 20-22 meters per second.
According to the department of civil defence of the Primorsky Territory, the heaviest rains were reported in southern and western districts of the territory. The heaviest rains were reported in the Khasan and Shkotovo districts, Vladivostok and Nakhodka, where a half month norm of precipitation fell down.
“The reports about injured people and utility breakdowns have not been made yet,” the civil defence department reported.
On Wednesday, the eye of the cyclone has moved to the high seas and is moving to the western coast of the Japanese island Honshu.
