MOSCOW, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. An emergency situation mode was imposed on Thursday in the Rostov region, in Russia’s south, amid heavy snowfalls, Minister for Emergency Situations Vladimir Puchkov said on Thursday, adding that it should have been imposed earlier.
He urged the local authorities to see to it that housing and utility sector and socially important facilities operated unremitted, while the situation on local highways was stabilized.
“Use additional forces, deal with traffic jams, clear lanes, organize reversible lanes, pull out cars and buses to get rid of traffic jams” he said.
Deputy Governor of the Rostov Region Sergei Gorban said snowfalls had got heavier while winds had increased to 20 meters per second amid temperatures plummeting to minus 23 degrees Celsius in the regional centre Rostov-on-Don and to minus 30 in northern and eastern areas of the region. He also said that the emergency mode had already been imposed in 11 municipalities on Wednesday.
