A cyclone passed in the north of the Sakhalin region. Because of the strong wind, a man and a woman were killed in Aleksandrovsk-Sakhalinsk by a corrugated board torn from the roof.

As EastRussia was told in the regional government, the authorities will help the families of the victims. They will be provided with all the support they need.

The cyclone still continues to operate on the island, work to eliminate the consequences is carried out around the clock, but due to bad weather, the work is complicated.

There are problems with power supply on the island - the only power transmission line in Aleksandrovsk-Sakhalinsk is located in a remote area. Helicopters of the Ministry of Emergency Situations took off for restoration, most of the city receives electricity from reserve diesel generators. Schools, kindergartens, nursing homes, a boarding school and a boiler room are connected to them. In total, 10 power transmission poles, 12 trees were blown away by the wind in the city and nine roofs on houses and social facilities were damaged.

Yesterday residents of the Okha district were left without electricity, there were problems with water supply. The Nogliki-Okha section of the road is closed from 20:00 on October 17 until the weather conditions improve.

Today the elements will continue to operate on the island. The wind on the coast will be about 35 m / s, and in the interior of the island - up to 20 m / s.
