Chisinau, 07 March /MOLDPRES/ – The State Hydrometeorological Service (SHS) announced the Yellow Code for breaking of ice till 12 March.
According to the SHS’s information and media communication service, it is forecast destruction of ice in water basins and lakes of Moldova, in connection with sudden warming of weather conditions. Also, some sections of rivers will cause leakage of the ice beds with formation of holes.
