On the last day, March 12, a third of monthly precipitation fell in the Leningrad region. In total, approximately 12,000 kilometers of roads and roadsides have been cleared of snow and ice in the region. This was reported in the press service of the regional administration.
Utilities and road services are intensively cleaning roads, worksites and public spaces in all districts. In some municipalities, the snowfall did not stop until the morning of March 12, so snow removal continues. Drivers were urged to remember winter driving style, obey the speed limit and avoid special vehicles. Over the next three days, the weather situation in the region will remain difficult: moderate snowfall will continue, which will turn into sleet and rain.
Residents can lodge their appeals in the group Snow Headquarters “VKontakte”. Additionally, a 24-hour hotline continues to operate in the area at 8(812)251-42-84. You can leave a message there about regional road situations.
Earlier, MK in the Leningrad region reported that the Emergency Situations Ministry spoke about the weather in the 47th region early next week.
