Donetsk, Nov 27 — DAN. Emergency services and utility companies have scrambled to clean up the Donetsk People’s Republic capital of fallen trees brought down by gale-force winds.

Some of the trees fell on trafficways  and had to be moved to the roadside in preparations for recycling. Bad weather also brought down several electricity pylons in Donetsk; repairs are underway.

Earlier reports said regional authorities were not yet planning the evacuation of the Mangush municipality residents in southern DPR  which had been hit by a storm wave.*jk
