Occupation authorities warned that wind speeds could reach 40 meters per second. The consequences of the storm have already been felt by the residents of Evpatoria – the raging sea flooded a section of the highway along with a passenger bus.
A super-powerful storm is expected in the near future on the territory of the Crimean peninsula. Waves can reach 10 meters in height. This is evidenced by data from the Poseidon monitoring system.
It is noted that the peak of bad weather in the occupied territory will be recorded from 21:00 on November 26 to 0:00 on November 27. The height of the waves at this moment will be from 8 to 10 meters in height, which reaches the level of 3-4 floors of the house.

RIA Novosti writes that in some cities hurricane winds in the north-west of Crimea can reach 40 meters per second.
“The wind speed in Sevastopol is 26, Khersones – 25, Evpatoria – 25 and Chernomorskoe – a hurricane of 40 meters per second,” the message says.
The so-called head of the “administration” of Yevpatoria, Elena Demidova, said that bad weather flooded several households on the coast, and therefore a decision was made to evacuate 20 families. They will be sent to the nearest sanatoriums and boarding houses.
The intercity highway from Simferopol was also partially flooded, and therefore the road had to be closed.
Earlier, the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations reported that a storm warning had been declared in Crimea until November 27.
“There is a possibility of accidents occurring in the waters of the Black and Azov Seas and the Kerch Strait. The presence of people in the coastal zone, on piers and shore protection structures is life-threatening,” the message says.
Let us remind you that on November 26 it was reported that the Odessa region was covered by bad weather. As a result, 48 accidents occurred, and another 131 settlements were left without electricity. The height of the snowdrifts can reach 70 centimeters. As a result of the accidents, 2 people were injured, and most often road accidents on highways in the region involved trucks or passenger buses.
