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.
Overnight to October 2, a powerful cyclone approached the Sakhalin region and a storm warning was issued. At least one person died and more than 20 were injured. More than 900 houses and 89 socially significant facilities were damaged. Electricity supplies were stopped to nine municipalities leaving about 300,000 people without electricity.
