In Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, an emergency regime was announced, associated with clearing roads from snow, the press service of the city administration said.
The cyclone in the south of Sakhalin does not stop for the second day. The city has already received 34 percent of the monthly rainfall. According to the city administration, the brunt of the disaster hit the planning areas, especially the northern part of the city district, where a blizzard was raging.
The clearing of the roads continued throughout the night, but the workers were greatly hampered by the low visibility. There is still no transport connection with Bereznyaki, Starorussky, Novaya Derevnya, Klyuchi and Sinegorsk.
“Due to the fact that the northern part of the urban district is actually cut off from the city center, the mayor instructed the leadership of the department of food resources and the consumer market to monitor stores for the availability of necessary products,” it says in the message of the mayor’s office.
In the new Dalniy microdistrict, residents have abandoned their cars on the streets. This significantly interferes with snow removal. The brigades of the Fedotov plant are clearing the inner-quarter driveways. They need to ensure access to social institutions, primarily to kindergartens. According to the city administration, there is little progress in clearing courtyards and pedestrian zones.
– We have issued warnings to all management companies so that they are urgently involved in work. It is necessary to remove your jurisdictional territories. There is simply no other option, – said the mayor of the regional center Sergei Nadsadin.
According to the forecast of meteorologists, the bad weather will continue in the regional center until Friday.
