In Yakutia, 69 thousand people remained without electricity. The reason was the disruption of the high-voltage Suntar-Vilyuisk line, which occurred on the morning of July 17.

According to the website of the Situational-Analytical Center of the Ministry of Energy of Russia, consumers of the Suntarsky, Vilyuisky, Nyurbinsky and Verkhnevilyuysky districts of the Republic remained without power supply.

At the time of repair work was ordered to connect the backup diesel power plants. The accident occurred due to strong winds and thunderstorms that raged in the region the day before.
