Yuzhno Sakhalinsk Airport resumes operation after 2-day storm


Yuzhno Sakhalinsk Airport resumed operation on Monday after a violent snow storm that swept Sakhalin for two days.

Specialists have removed the snow from the runway to allow planes to take off and land. The storm delayed over 20 domestic and international flights, including to China, South Korea, and Japan.

The storm is now moving at a speed to 20 kilometers per hour to the Kuriles. The island of Paramushir, where the city of Severokurilsk is located, was the last to be attacked by the storm.

The wind, blowing at times at a speed of 32 kilometres per second, tore many electric lines on Monday morning, leaving the city without electricity for more than 12 hours. Power supplies resumed only in the evening, the head of the local emergencies department, Viktor Kobzev, said.
