SEVASTOPOL, November 30. /TASS/. Residents of Sevastopol, a city of federal importance in Crimea, were left without heating on Monday as power outages in the Black Sea peninsula continue.
Crimea declared a state of emergency on November 22 after explosions cut off electricity supply from Ukraine. This forced the peninsula to rely on generators.
An emergency commission is due to take the final decision on the around-the-clock heating in apartment blocks later on day, the director of the city’s municipal service department, Oleg Kazurin said.
The temperature in Sevastopol is around 10 degrees Celsius now. Heating is expected to be restored in mid-December when the temperatures reach minus 8 degrees Celsius.
The Krymenergo energy company reduced the limit of power consumption in Sevastopol by 5 MW to 70 MW on Monday, Kazurin said. Over the last few days, power was switched on in Sevastopol’s districts every six hours for two hours.
More than 100 boiler stations are operating in the city. "The emergency response teams are working 24 hours," the official said.
On Monday, studies at schools in 17 Crimean districts were resumed. Holidays will be extended for students in eight other districts, Education Minister Natalya Goncharova said.
Crimean leader Sergey Aksyonov said all schools would be provided with diesel generators by December 20.
The Kabardino-Balkar Republic, in Russia's North Caucasus, has sent a 50 KW generator, an airmobile facility and 8 tons of goods to Crimea. Another 100 KW generator is also due to be delivered to the peninsula soon.
