2,019 communities across 16 regions are disconnected from the grid in total. Since Russia’s invasion of Odesa in February of last year, the city in southern Ukraine has seen 1624 people become trapped in the snow.

The area is experiencing below-freezing temperatures and 72 km/h winds, according to reports. Social media videos showed enormous waves smashing against the Black Sea coasts of Russia, with gusts of wind exceeding 140 kilometers per hour in certain areas.
