Residents of the Russian island of Vladivostok, which was cut off from the outside world due to a snowy cyclone and the closure of the bridge, sit without light for the sixth day, on their own they clear the yards of fallen trees and wait in long queues to get on the ferry to the mainland. This was reported by the RIA Novosti correspondent.

On the island, where several thousand people live, electricity was turned off on November 18, when a cyclone with freezing rain just overtook Primorye. Many houses were left without water the next day, some without heating.

On the morning of November 21, traffic on the bridge to Russky Island was blocked after the ice fell from the cables. The authorities have set up a ferry to get to the mainland. It can carry 20 cars and runs every two hours, does not go at night. However, in order to drive it by car, you need to stand in a long queue.
