KRASNODAR, January 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Power supply in the southern Russian Krasnodar Territory, disrupted as a result of an ice storm that hit the region early on January 21, has been restored, Governor Alexander Tkachev said at a meeting of the regional emergency response center.
Tkachev said at the meeting that took place Monday that over 2,000 power transmission line towers, which had collapsed due to freezing rain, as well as kilometers of broken wires, were mounted, and a few thousand broken transformer substations were put into operation anew.
The freezing rain caused large-scale blackouts in the region. “Tens of thousands of people and some 500 social facilities were left without light, and somewhere without heating,” the governor’s press service told Itar-Tass.
Tkachev praised the regional authorities for their handling of the situation but called for better operation of monitoring services to provide residents with relevant information.
Bad weather blacked out the homes of about 150,000 people in the Krasnodar Territory and the republic of Adygea, an enclave within the territory, in the morning of January 21.
