In the southern and Siberian regions of Russia, about 50 thousand people remain without electricity due to hurricane winds. Deputy Minister of Energy Evgeny Grabchak announced this on the Rossiya 24 TV channel.
According to him, on the Crimean peninsula, about 6 thousand people are also sitting without electricity due to bad weather. In Siberia, the situation is more difficult – six regions are left without electricity, the wind front is moving towards the Far East. By the end of Monday, November 20, the problems will be resolved, Grabchak added.
“As the wind front moves forward – editor’s note, an increasing number of consumers are left without power supply,” complained the Deputy Minister of Energy. “At the same time, restoration work is in full swing in the Kuzbass and Altai Territory, and we hope that in the Kuzbass and Altai Territory (they suffered the most) the main restoration work will be completed by tomorrow afternoon.”
It is known that in the Krasnoyarsk Territory, where the wind seriously damaged the power grid infrastructure, restoration work will last about two days. Last weekend, the number of people left without electricity reached a total of 260 thousand people.
Hurricane winds with gusts of 30-35 meters per second swept through the cities of the Siberian Federal District last weekend. For example, in Novokuznetsk, due to gusty winds, an advertising board fell on a woman near the City Mall shopping center.
