In Vladivostok, in the Russian Far East, freezing rain enveloped the city in a thick layer of ice, causing extensive damage.
At least 150,000 people were without water and electricity on Friday in a region of the Russian Far East and its capital Vladivostok, after an exceptional freezing rain that enveloped in a thick layer of ice infrastructure and landscapes. The government of the Primorié region has declared a “state of emergency”, and according to its deputy head, Elena Parkhomenko, “the situation of electricity supply remains very difficult”. “It could take several days to repair the damage,” she warned in a statement.
Freezing rain that hit Vladivostok and its region enveloped cables and trees with up to 12 millimeters of ice, which in many places gave way under this weight.
Never seen in 30 years
Images released by authorities and on social media also show cars, road signs and other urban infrastructure that appear to have been frozen.
“It has been 30 years since we had seen this in the Primorié region,” commented in a statement the regional head of the Russian meteorological services, Boris Koubaï, who hopes that sunny episodes expected on Saturday will lead to a thaw.
