THE WEATHER WILL CHANGE FOR THE WORSE
[03:14 pm] 30 January, 2007
The RA roads have been impassable so far because of
yesterday’s heavy snowfall. According to the data of
RA Ministry of Transportation and Communication, only
Berd-Tsambarak highway and Selimy mountain pass were
impassable by 9:00, whereas other roads of
intergovernmental and state importance were all open.
The streets of the capital are currently being cleaned
but the citizens don’t notice the work, the crossings
and backstreets a long way from the city centre are
still covered with thick layer of ice and snow.
Yesterday the municipality used 98 cars, 340-ton salt
and 500-cubic meter sand to clean the roads. Today
only 80-ton salt and 150-cubic meter sand are used.
«The roads are comparatively clean due to yesterday’s
work and now we are cleaning the backstreets», the
representative of the municipality told A1+.
«ArmHydromet» informed us that no snow will fall
today, but tomorrow it will snow heavily all over the
republic. The speed of the wind will surpass 20 – 25
meter second in Lori, Tavoush and Shirak, and the
temperature will drop about 3 – 5 degrees.
«Zvartnots» Airport informed us that the flights are
realised due to the schedule.
