ABAKAN, December 22, 17:08 /ITAR-TASS/. During Sunday’s inspections, experts identified some insignificant damage to time-worn buildings dating back to 1930s-1950s after an overnight earthquake that hit Khakassia, a constituent republic of the Russian Federation located in South Siberia.
Large-scale checkups are being carried out at the republic’s industrial and social facilities and on individual households aiming to find possible destructions caused by the earthquake.
