The expert stressed that the port of Novorossiysk is not completely isolated.

"This is not a deep harbor, but partially open to the Black Sea. There are periods when the situation with the elements heats up. There are problems for Russia. The natural disaster is big, but it is impossible to say that there will be interruptions in supplies. There will be some minor problems, but they will be solved," Suzdaltsev said.

Earlier there was information that about 40 ships were standing in front of the entrance to the port of Novorossiysk.

The Russian Emergencies Ministry said that one person was missing, four more were injured as a result of a storm in Crimea.

Adverse weather conditions left almost 2 million people living in the southern part of Russia without electricity.
