Snow, cold blamed for 29 deaths in spring storm PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 29 May 2008
ImageAs many as 29 may be dead following spring snowstorms in Mongolia’s eastern provinces. Officials report that possibly seven children have been found among the dead. 

Also, at least 100 Mongolians have been reported missing. 

The State Emergency Authority (SEA) said Wednesday that Suhbaatar's eastern province, along with two other provinces, have been cut off by the storm.  

SEA further said the majority of deaths were caused by severe temperatures. 

The snowstorm has also caused damage to buildings, villages and the provinces’ electronic infrastructure, according to officials.  

Snowstorms often occur in spring in Mongolia.

The goal of the Mongolian River Resources website is to provide information on a wide spectrum of topics related to natural resource use and the environment in Mongolia. This includes issues within Mongolia, and relevant international information and experiences. The need for information pertinent to the environment, ecology, and resource use, available to a broad audience with diverse interests and needs, was identified during the initial year of The Asia Foundation’s Securing Our Future program.
