The Ministry of Emergency Situations warned residents of Omsk about the dangers of bad weather

In the next few days, adverse weather conditions will be observed in the Omsk region – these are the data published on the website of UGMS Ob-Irtysh. The Ministry of Emergency Situations recommends that citizens follow safety rules and be careful on the roads.

On Monday, March 6, precipitation in the form of snow and sleet is expected in the Omsk region. In some areas – ice phenomena and snowstorms. The roads are icy in places. Southwesterly wind gusts will sometimes reach 15-19 m/s.

When the wind picks up, you don’t need to be near power lines, trees, and billboards. On the roads, pedestrians and drivers must be particularly attentive and careful. Remember that precipitation causes an increase in braking distance.

Motorists are advised to choose a speed mode taking into account weather conditions, keep a safe distance. And in addition, avoid sudden braking and erratic maneuvers.

It’s best to park away from tall trees, streetlights, and all the same power lines.

In the event of incidents or emergencies, report them immediately by calling 101.
