    I just saw the news today, Is it possible to make power lines in Vladivostok to go underground? Does the geography of the region permit this setup? It looks like the storm that hit the city is unprecedented, they say the last time a similar situation happened in Vladivostok took place 30 or so years ago. Russia needs to be on the lookout, I'm pretty sure NATO propaganda media is already concocting negative news about the incident and paint the Russian government as incompetent and corrupt and needs to be replaced with a NATO sockpuppet Rolling Eyes

    Compared to Quebec it is impossible to push the lines underground. Use Google Earth and take a look, Vladivostock sits on top of rocky terrain.
    The expense of cutting through rock for a power line would be insane. In Canada, this option is avoided even if the ground is soft (sand or
    silt).

    One question for the drones coming out to piss on Russia: have any of the high voltage transmission lines collapsed?

    They did in Quebec.

    The same thing happened in Canada in the province of Quebec with the same long duration power outage.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/January_1998_North_American_ice_storm

    The military can't fix all the damaged infrastructure all that fast.    They would have to have deployed
    generators but the number involved would be massive.   Nobody had the domestic backup power
    in Canada since we are not talking about one of those 4000 Watt generators but a larger one tied
    into the electrical system of the house.   In Russia people live in multi-residential buildings so those
    buildings would require hospital sized backup generators.   Those are huge and nobody anywhere
    installs them in apartment buildings.

    Anyone trying to spin this as a Russian fail is a scumbag.


    I am not trying to spin as "Russian fail", I just posting it because these things make the trust in the government go down.

    It always fluctuates.

    KVS is right.  I lived in Winnipeg back in the 90's and remember that power went out during winter storms. Thank goodness we had wood burning fire places and not natural gas BS cause we would have froze to death.

    Power outages and such is a major issue during any winter storm.  And Winnipeg is flat terrain mostly built on marsh land.  So there isn't nearly the excuse.

    The people bitching in the article are simply idiots. Yeah, it sucks but thats what happens. Because authorities are not right there and then at the very second is a laugh.

    There is EMERCOM and the 100. KSS of the armed forces, a special unit for emergeny situations established a few years ago (order from Shoigu). The unit brought equipment to western siberia after the covid outbreak there. But they can´t be everywhere.

    I never accused you so take it easy.

    Why would I accuse you?

    Clearly it is the liberasts and their western sponsors that would be spinning this.

    Unsure if there was some malfunction with the bus or was a terrorist attack.

    Personally leaning towards something went off in the bus, from personal experience if this was a terror attack the explosion would have been more potent.

    Those two women walking/running away look suspicious... the one walking didn't even look when the explosion happened... like she was expecting it...

    Hopefully the two dead women were black widows on their way to a target and something went wrong.

    You mean you survived one? I thought that terrorist attacks were far less common after Russia pacified the Caucasus. Isn't that the case? That, in my opinion, is one of the most notable achievements of Putin.

    I am assuming of course that you reside in Russia. Forgive me if otherwise.

    Cops say that bomb is extremely unlikely so it was probably technical

    And if it were terrorism someone would have claimed responsibility by now

    When I first heard the news and saw that no terror groups are bragging I was worried they might have serial bomber out and about but luckily it's nothing like that

    The Siberian Times
    August 25 at 11:18 PM ·
    Shiveluch (3,307m), one of two Kamchatka’s most active and most continuously erupting volcanoes is awake again. Tourists are warned to stay clear from the area as it is extremely dangerous. The volcano’s activity grew after 29 July Alaska’s earthquake, local volcanologists said. Video via Kamchatka1



    Shiveluch Smokes Once Again
    The Shiveluch volcano is erupting once again. It is one of the largest and most active volcanoes in Kamchatka Krai, a territory in northeast Russia. At least 60 large eruptions have occurred at Shiveluch in the past 10,000 years. The Operational Land Imager on Landsat 8 acquired an image of the latest eruption on February 23, 2019.

    The Kamchatkan Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT) reported growth in the lava dome (a mound formed by viscous magma piling up around the volcano’s vent) from February 8-15, 2019. Additionally, satellite images detected thermal anomalies daily. News outlets reported ash plumes reaching as high as 6 kilometers (4 miles) on February 21. In the image above, the plume is traveling northeast, throwing a shadow to the north of the volcano.

    As of February 25, explosive activity continues. The Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Tokyo warned of additional volcanic ash plumes at altitudes approaching 4 kilometers. KVERT reports ongoing activity could affect low-flying and international flights.

    Most Recent Weekly Report: 18 August-24 August 2021Citation IconCite this Report
    KVERT reported that the growth of the lava dome at Sheveluch continued during 14-24 August, accompanied by strong fumarolic activity, dome incandescence, and hot avalanches. A thermal anomaly was identified in satellite imagery all week. Gas-and-steam plumes containing some ash drifted 370 km SW, E, and SE. On 21 and 24 August ash plumes rose to 4 km (13,100 ft) a.s.l. and drifted 86 km SE and 3.5 km (11,500 ft) a.s.l. and drifted as far as 100 km SE, respectively. The Tokyo VAAC reported ash plumes during 17-25 August that rose to 3.7-5.5 km (12,000-18,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted E, S, SE. The Aviation Color Code remained at Orange (the second highest level on a four-color scale).
