Initially there were 27 Kazakhstan citizens on the island, said the press-secretary. Eight people were evacuated on March 30. Five more people took a plane to leave the island and six people used a ferry on March 31 .

As per the forecasts a clearing is expected in the coming two-three days, but it is too early to make any statements yet, Omarov said.
