PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, October 26. /TASS/. Emergency regime has been introduced in Russia’s Far Eastern Kamchatka due to a powerful cyclone that struck Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and Elizovsky district, local administration’s press service said on Monday.
"On October 26, mudslides were registered on the territory of Petropavlosk-Kamchatsky, as well as flooded basements of residential houses, leaks in roofs. The threat currently exists that the road from the Kultuchnoye lake will overflow near Mekhzavod [the city’s center]," the press service quoted the Kamchatka Territory's acting deputy government chairman Sergey Khabarov as saying.
According to Khabarov, special and communal services are undertaking urgent measures to prevent emergencies and providing disaster relief.
"We are making all efforts to minimize the damage from the passing cyclone. We mainly focused on cleaning storm-water systems, ensuring work of pumping stations that pump wastewater," he said adding that firefighting trucks and cesspool trucks are used to pump water from basements of residential houses.
"All consequences of the cyclone will be eliminated in the short-term. We do not rule out that this will require resources from the reserve fund of the Kamchatsky Krai’s government," Khabarov noted.
He stated that weather conditions should normalize on October 27, according to meteorologists.
