Sanitary-epidemiological situation remains stable in the storm-hit Zhambyl oblast, Tengrinews.kz reports citing Kazakhstan Emergency Situations Ministry. According to the Ministry's press-service, the works to reconnect Karatau to power supply are still in process. Up to 50 percent of the private houses and social buildings have been connected. "The majority of the population are supplied with fresh water via the central water supply system. Water is transported in trucks to several multi-storey buildings, as the pressure in water the supply network is insufficient," the Ministry states. Meanwhile, the repairing of the heating network continues in Zhanatas. "Restoration of power supply is underway: around 80 percent of the town's facilities (residential multi-storey buildings and social buildings) have been connected. Power supply is being restored in the private sector. The repair works are in process in the heating systems of two kindergartens and two colleges," Ministry writes. The storm hit Zhambyl oblast last Saturday and left several villages, Zhanatas and Karatau towns without electricity, water, gas and communications. Nearby Taraz city was affected by storm as well: its power lines were damaged, roofs of houses, hospitals, schools were ripped off, trees and road signs were scattered in the streets. On January 12 bad weather caused an emergency blackout in Saryssu, Zhualyn and Talas regions of Zhambyl oblast.
