Over 90,000 residents of the city of Vladivostok city left without electricity; some houses without heat supply. State of emergency declared.

MOSCOW, 19 Nov –  The Vostochnaya Combined Heat and Power Plant (CHPP) in Vladivostok has halted electricity generation because of heavy ice with wind, press service of the Russian Energy Ministry told TASS on Thursday.

“The Energy Ministry exercises special control over power supply in the Primorsky Region: a portion of power transmission line turned off due to heavy snow with wind; Vostochnaya CHPP halted electricity generation, and power supply to a portion of consumers has been disrupted,” the press service says.

The Vladivostok Administration has introduced a state of emergency in the city because of large-scale power tripping during the snow cyclone.

According to local authorities, over 90,000 Vladivostok residents are left without electricity; some houses are without heat supply.

As of this moment (1:30 am, 22 Nov) it is 25F (-3.9C) in Vladivostok.

I’m sure they wouldn’t mind a little bit of global warming..

  1. the majority of heating for those huge tower blocks is steam heat they bleed off in winter to keep the populace warm. wit the low temps it wont take long for the outside walls etc to start to chill down
    concrete slabs seem to be the favoured building material,not conducive to holding heat for very long.
    theyre well used to savage winter n storms so this one must have been a ripper!

  2. And this idiot Biden wants to ban heating oil here in the US!
    He’ll tell us we’re destroying the planet by heating our homes!
    Fireplaces? Forget it! He’ll ban that too because you’re “destroying the planet.”

  3. Snow, heavy rain hit most parts of Iran.
    November 21, 2020
    According to traffic control centers across the country, snow and rain are pouring over some parts of Ardebil, Zanjan, Qazvin, Alborz, Tehran, Mazandaran, Semnan, Hamedan, Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari, and West Azarbaijan provinces. (..)
    Snow and rain have been reported in Chalous, Haraz, and Firoozkooh roads, as well as Tehran-North and Qazvin-Rasht freeways.
    Earlier in October, Sahar Tajbakhsh, head of the Meteorological Organization (IMO), said that according to meteorological maps, Iran will be facing a cold winter with heavy snowfalls this year.
    Almost all the country will experience heavy snow, but the provinces on high altitudes will receive heavier snowfall, she stated.
    TEHRAN – Heavy snow and rainfall which started on Friday have affected nearly two-thirds of the country’s provinces so far.

  4. Great googly-moogly!… Russian power plant halts operation after the boiler maintenance operator, Vlad [Dracula] Ivostok, ‘accidentally’ drops a yellow snow cone into the main city boiler. Coincidently the whole operation including both the steam heat and gens went down at the same time due to the ‘low tech infrastructure’ in this small backwards Russian hick town… no backups, fail safes or contingency plans… it all sounds about as real and coincidental as any of the 1900-2020 agitpsyop theatre we’ve been given so far. Maybe the ‘Darkest Winter’ starts in Vladivostok for the Russkies… or for the all of the northern (and even southern AUS ) hemisphere.

  5. While a devastating global blackout is PREVENTABLE*, BBC: in case of a global blackout, hold a …torch!!!…
    Τhe National Preparedness Commission, is looking at what other “unexpected future shocks” we should be expecting.
    Funded by businesses, including Amazon, the commission is made up of people from the NHS Confederation, the Serious Organised Crime Agency, Tesco, the British Red Cross, Google Cloud, Unilever, the Bank of England and the National Grid. On Thursday the commission held their first meeting.
    So, what will they, on our behalf, be worrying about?
    The violent solar storms that threaten Earth.
    The commission will be looking at all sorts of issues over the coming months, but for now once piece of practical advice Lord Harris can offer is to make sure you have a working torch to hand.
