Early season snowfall in Kazakhstan

19 Oct 2016 – In Shymkent winter came earlier than usual.

In the city the heavy rain transitioned to snow. Tumbled down more than a hundred trees not surviving the ice load on the branches.

Utilities still continue to clean up the streets, and power outages have been resolved.
