MAKHACHKALA, January 9. /TASS/. Specialists have eliminated the consequences of the avalanche that cut off access to 55 settlements in Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Dagestan and cleared the roads, a Russian Emergencies Ministry’s regional department spokesman told TASS on Saturday.
"As of 12:30pm, 15 cars have already been allowed through on the road," the spokesman said.
On Friday evening, 55 settlements with around 16,000 residents in Dagestan were cut off from civilization following an avalanche. "An avalanche occurred on the 7th kilometer of the Antsukh-Tlyarata road in Tlyaratinsky district. As a result, the Tlyarata-Makhachkala road was closed," the Russian Emergencies Ministry’s regional department said.
Preliminary reports say no one was injured in the incident. Eleven people and five units of equipment were dispatched to the site to deal with the consequences of the avalanche and restore access to the settlements that were cut off.
