VLADIKAVKAZ, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. North Ossetia welcomes the Olympic Torch Relay while experiencing record harsh frost, which has not prevented Vladikavkaz residents this Thursday from gathering at Spartak stadium where the ceremony is held.
Participants and spectators are warmed by hot tea and Ossetian songs.
According to weather forecasters, it will be unusually cold with temperatures plunging to minus 10-15 degrees Celsius and down to minus 20 degrees in some areas at night and minus 8-13 degrees in the daytime in most of the republic's regions and Vladikavkaz during the period from January 30 to February 3.
Forces of the Russian Emergencies Ministry in the republic are on alert in connection with the unusually cold weather, a spokesperson for the ministry's North Ossetian department, Yulia Starchenko, told Itar-Tass. Heavy snow and icy conditions are expected, and there is risk of avalanches in the mountains, she said. Drivers are recommended not to go on dangerous road sections until the situation returns to normal.
