VLADIVOSTOK, July 22 (Itar-Tass) -- Municipal services in Vladivostok are busy eliminating the aftermath of a powerful cyclone that raged for two days in the Primorsky /Maritime/ territory.
Rains of an almost torrential intensity washed out a section of the automobile road on Russky Island and impeded communications between the city center and several suburban townships on the coast.
At the time of reporting, repair teams of the local power were working hard to restore power supplies to three apartment blocks on Cape Basargin.
An emergency discharge of water from a local water reservoir resulted in a flooding of several dacha cooperatives. Officials at the local branch of the Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense /EMERCOM/ said, however, no one among the local resident received any bodily damage because of the calamity.
An electricity transmission line failure occurred in the Partizansky district due to a washout of a supporting pylon. As a result, the residents of a local town found themselves disconnected from electric power.
Weather forecasters say this is the second cyclone to call into the Primorsky territory since the beginning of the summer. A monthly norm of atmospheric precipitation fell out in the southern districts of the region since Saturday morning.
The rising water levels have caused floods on several rivers.
In meantime, forecasts say a new cyclone is likely to approach the Primorsky territory in three days' time. It will bring along with it more rainfall accompanied by gusts of wind.
