KRASNOYARSK, December 02. /ITAR-TASS/. A storm bringing severe winds has left thousands without power in Russia’s Siberia.
Over 12,000 residents in the Altai territory and over 10,000 residents in the Kemerovo region remain without electricity.
“Wind gusts reached 22-27 meters per second what caused the overlapping of wires. Restoration works to unwind wires will be completed during the day,” a source at Kuzbassenergo power distributing company said.
In Krasnoyarsk the city mayor instructed life support services to intensify their work.
“Specialists should urgently inform districts’ administrations on possible incidents and to eliminate consequences of the heavy wind,” mayor Edkham Akbulatov said.
The Siberian department of the hydrometeorological service said the Krasnoyarsk territory’s central and southern districts would be hit by wind gusts up to 23-25 meters per second and its northern and western regions would be embraced by sleet.
The storm is raging in the Republic of Khakassia and the Novosibirsk region, where the wind velocity exceeds 30 meters and 22 meters per second respectively.
On the second day of winter it is anomalously warm in most regions of Eastern Siberia, where temperature reaches four degrees above zero.
