An avalanche warning has been issued in Russia’s Sakhalin
An avalanche warning has been issued in Russia’s Sakhalin, after a powerful snow cyclone triggered five avalanches in the southern part of the island. Three of them have sealed off the highway between the city of Nevelsk and the settlement of Shebunino. The powerful cyclone paralysed transport on many roads, as well as closed the ferry line between Vanino and Holmsk. The airport of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk is closed, the regional department of the Ministry for Emergency Situations reported. A double monthly norm of snow has fallen in different parts of Sakhalin over the past two days. Now the cyclone is leaving Sakhalin and the Kurile Islands to the Pacific Ocean, also hitting Kamchatka. This winter Sakhalin has seen several cyclones. About 30 avalanches were registered in mid-December, when a cyclone was hovering over the island for two days
