Four Thousand in St. Petersburg Still Without Power After St. Jude

Satellite imagery of St. Jude over northern Europe, which brought winds of up to 194.4 km/h.

St. Jude has left 3,700 residents without power in 124 settlements of the Leningrad region as of Wednesday morning, the Emergencies Ministry's regional office reported.

Power outages caused by the storm were reported in the Kingiseppsky, Luzhsky, Volosovsky, Volkhovsky, Lodeinopolsky and Tikhvinsky districts, Rossiiskaya Gazeta reported.

Electricity was restored in the majority of the homes originally affected by the storm, which cut off power to 13,000 people in 238 settlements.

Emergency teams from the local electricity company Lenenergo together with local firefighters continue to restore the power supply in the areas hit by the rough weather.
