So-called "head of the Yalta administration" Andrey Rostenko announced during a meeting of the interdepartmental staff for emergency response with the participation of representatives of local councils yesterday, Censor.NET reports citing Kryminform.
"The heating has been turned on in about 450 out of 880 buildings. We have started to gradually increase pressure and enter into normal operation," Rostenko said.
At the same time the energy situation in the region remains tense. A large number of accidents are still taking place there due to overload.
"64 power line breakdowns took place to date. 34 of them have been eliminated by Krymenergo repair crews and public service employees," he said.
He once again urged the residents to refrain from switching on a large number of heaters to avoid overloads.
"Three repair crews of Krymenergo will be sent in Yalta vicinity within three hours today to deal with power line breakdowns."
