Storms, strong wind, and heavy rain and snowfall in much of Ukraine on Nov. 26-27 led to floods, power outages, and traffic problems.

Over 2,000 settlements in 15 oblasts have been left without power supply as of the morning of Nov. 27, the state grid operator Ukrenergo said on Telegram.

Heavy winds at a speed of 144 km/h were recorded in Crimea overnight, leaving four people injured and one missing, Krym.Realii reported.

Dozens of settlements on the occupied peninsula were reportedly left without electricity. Several rivers have flooded, leading to evacuations of residents, the Crimean Wind Telegram channel wrote.

Storms and floods have reportedly also reached the Sea of Azov and the occupied city of Berdiansk, according to local Telegram channels.

Several roads in Odesa and Mykolaiv oblasts were closed due to heavy snow and low visibility, and trucks were prohibited from entering Kyiv.

Emergency services provided assistance to drivers dealing with bad weather conditions 62 times in Odesa Oblast, 19 times in Kirovohrad Oblast, and 14 times in Mykolaiv Oblast.
