The Amur Electric Grids branch of DRSK continues to operate in high alert mode. Heavy rains, showers and thunderstorms are expected in the Amur Region today. The wind can increase to squally.

According to the press service of the DRSK, a thunderstorm is one of the most frequent causes of power outages. According to statistics, about 80% of accidents on power lines are associated with it. Therefore, you need to be prepared for lightning blackouts and take measures to protect yourself and your home.

During a thunderstorm, power engineers ask residents to be careful when they are closer than eight meters from power facilities. It is dangerous to stay near damaged or sagging wires, especially if there is a gust of wind. All damage to power grid equipment and dangerous situations must be reported to the single contact center of JSC "DRSK" 8-800-1000-397 or to the Ministry of Emergency Situations.

During a thunderstorm, it is better not to leave the house, to close the windows and doors. It is not worth making a fire and stoking the stoves at this time, since the smoke has a high electrical conductivity. Electrical appliances must be turned off from the network, if possible, do not use the telephone.

If a thunderstorm started when you were outside, then you need to hide in the nearest building, but in no case try to hide under lonely trees or in sheds, as well as in water or not water. It is better to move away from the shore near water bodies.

It is also important not to do outdoor sports or run. It is believed that sweat and rapid movement "attracts" lightning. It is better not to leave the car, you just need to close the windows and stop.
