ST PETERSBURG, November 17, /ITAR-TASS/. Strong winds caused power outages in a number of apartment blocks in the town of Lakhdenpokhya, Russia’s northwestern region of Karelia, the north-western regional centre of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense (EMERCOM) said on Sunday.
An emergency cutoff of electric power was reported by the local power operator at 13:30 Moscow Standard Time (9:30 GMT). It affected as many as 7,775 customers including 1,675 children.
The outages also affected socially important facilities which are seven boiler plants, a water intake, three nurseries, two schools and a hospital.
Emergency crews were working at the site of the power grid failure throughout the day. Officials said power supplies to the districts that had lost electricity might be restored by 18:00 hours Moscow Standard Time.
