YUZHNO-SAKHALINSK, October 8. /TASS/. Air service between Russia’s Far Eastern Island of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands has been interrupted by a powerful cyclone, a spokesman for the Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk airport told TASS on Thursday.
"Due to the bad weather, flights to the Islands of Kunashir and Iturup have been delayed," the spokesman said.
A powerful cyclone has approached the Kuril Island on Thursday. Over the past night, up to 14 mm of rainfall were registered in the South Kuril district. Wind gusts reached 42 meters a second.
A ferry service between Sakhalin and the mainland Russia was interrupted earlier over a storm in the Tatar Strait.
This is the second cyclone hitting the Sakhalin region this month.
