Thousands of people have lost power, including in large suburban areas of Chelyabinsk, prompting officials to declare an emergency in three districts.
The unusual low pressure area spread from the Baltic Sea, crossing the European territory to the Caspian Sea, with the Urals, in particular the Chelyabinsk, the Kurgan, and Orenburg regions facing the worst conditions in more than 20 years.
The wind average speed is of 15-16 m / s, with gusts up to 25 m / s. It is -40°C in some places and heavy snow is falling. It is however forecast that the temperature will increase towards -9°C on Friday. That’s a difference of 30°C within 24 hours! Amazing!
Similar situations occur in Kazakhstan this year: animals freezing solid… and last year: people had to dig tunnels to get out of their homes. Learn more about this insane blizzard on 74.ru.
