MOSCOW, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations has brought the situation in 19 regions, where a spell of heavy frost and snowfalls set in, under control, said Head of the national Center for managing crisis situations under the Ministry for Emergency Situations Viktor Yatsutsenko. "The weather forecast remains unfavorable," he stressed.
More than 80 emergency groups have been operating in regions to coordinate the emergency forces and their activities, collect information and inspect socially important facilities, Yatsutsenko said.
On Thursday the administration of the Rostov region declared an emergency regime in the Rostov region because of a heavy snowfall and low air temperatures. Deputy Governor of the Rostov Region Sergei Gorban said snowfalls had worsened and the wind force had grown to 20 meters per second amid low air temperatures dropping to 20 degrees Celsius below zero point in the Rostov-on-Don region and even to minus 30 degrees in the north and east of the region.
