On April 8, a Pacific cyclone arrived in Kamchatka, which, according to the Ministry of Emergency Situations, will last on April 9. Wind gusts in some areas of the peninsula reached 47 m / s.

According to the press service of the administration of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, in just a day, 24 calls were received to the number of the Unified Dispatching Service about wire breaks, torn off roofs, and fallen trees. Classes in schools were canceled for all classes, both in the first and second shifts. Additional classes will not be held today.

On Naberezhnaya Street, traffic had to be blocked: metal structures and building materials were scattered along the road. According to the regional Department of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, emergency recovery work is now being carried out at the site. The city authorities have created a group that collects information about all incidents and predicts the places of possible emergencies.

As the press service of the Main Directorate of the EMERCOM of Russia in the Kamchatka Territory added, the cyclone is shifting to the Bering Sea. However, in Petropavlovsk, the storm wind was not the strongest - about 27 m / s. In the south of the Ust-Bolsheretsky region and on the coast of the Elizovsky region, gusts reached 45-47 m / s.

Today the wind will subside a little, and the Aleutian municipal district will be under threat. On the coasts there will be a blizzard and winds of 40-45 m / s. Also, the Ust-Kamchatsky region will remain at the mercy of the elements: here wind gusts will be 20-25 m / s.
