Thawing in Transcarpathia. Rescuers warn about avalanche hazard

On February 17-18, in connection with thawing, significant avalanche hazard (level III) is expected in the mountains of the eastern part of Transcarpathian region, and moderate avalanche hazard (level II) is expected in the mountains of the western and central part.

Taking this into account, the State Emergencies Service of Ukraine Office in Transcarpathian region advices citizens to refrain from trips to the mountains, as in case of avalanches such trips can end tragically.

If after all you decided to go conquering the slopes of the Carpathians, strictly follow basic safety rules. First of all, get registered at the nearest rescue service unit, prepare for the trip taking warm clothes and climbing equipment, alsways be accompanied by experienced tourists and stop the trip in adverse weather conditions. Remember: neglecting these tips can lead to fatal consequences.
