Avalanche danger persists in nine districts of the Sakhalin Oblast. The melting of the snow mass on March 6 is likely in Uglegorsky, Kholmsky, Dolinsky, Makarovsky, Tomarinsky districts, as well as in the Aniva, Nevelsky and Korsakovsky districts. Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk was also included in this list.

According to the press service of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Russian Federation for the Sakhalin Region, when falling under an avalanche, the main thing is to try to protect the respiratory organs from snow dust. It is important to keep your hands close to your face.

Rescuers do not recommend shouting, as the snow completely absorbs sounds. According to statistics, more than a third of people caught in an avalanche are selected independently.
