Emergency warning for Siberia 
as temperatures plunge

_____________________________


16 Jan 08 - Expected temperatures of as low as minus 55C (minus 67F) in Siberia prompted weather warnings from Russia's Emergency Situations Ministry on Wednesday.

Average temperatures in large Siberian cities in January usually range between minus 15C and minus 39C, according to data from the US site weatherbase.com.

The freezing temperatures have overloaded electricity grids, cutting off power to thousands of homes. Two people have already died in the region of Irkutsk in central Siberia, and more than 30 others have been hospitalized with frost-bite. Schools have been closed in at least four regions because of the cold.
