KIEV, January 30, 23:33 /ITAR-TASS/. An emergency situation has been introduced in Ukraine’s Autonomous Republic of Crimea due to a sharp deterioration of weather, the information department of the regional Council of Ministers said Thursday.
“At the instruction of Prime Minister Anatoly Mogilyov, emergency situation has been introduced in Crimea in the wake of a sharp deterioration of weather,” the statement says.
Harsh frosts and gale-strong wind have brought in numerous complications to the normal operations of public transport in fifteen districts of the republic. Regular activity of a range of social facilities has been impeded by disruptions of power supplies and the normal functioning of heat and tap-water supply systems has been suspended in a number of areas.
At the time of reporting, an electricity blackout was keeping 206 towns and villages in its grips.
In the meantime weather forecasts do not sound very reassuring, as researchers say they do not expect any major changes in the situation for at least another three days.
