A nasty weather storm slammed much of Ukraine, with strong winds playing havoc in several oblasts.

Odesa Oblast faced some of the most extreme conditions, with a strong gust of wind toppling a wind turbine in the Bilhorod-Dnistrovsky district, Ukraine’s Energy Ministry reported.

Due to gusts of wind, frost, and freezing rain, energy networks in several oblasts have seen significant icing. The temperature in the country ranges from −5 to −20 °C (−4 – 23 °F). Southern Ukraine has seen slightly warmer temperatures, from +4 to −1°C (30 – 39° F).

“Eliminating the consequences of poor weather is a work in progress in all oblasts affected by adverse weather conditions,” the Energy Ministry said. “All services are operating in emergency mode. Power is gradually being returned to the homes of Ukrainians.”
