ROSTOV-ON-DON, December 3 (RIA Novosti) - Some 471,000 people have been left without electricity in the Republic of Dagestan in Russia's North Caucasus due to a power grid failure, the regional emergency services said Sunday.

"At 8.34 a.m. Moscow time (5:34 a.m. GMT) the officer on duty received information that a part of the republic's mountainous and highly mountainous districts were left without electricity due to the rupture of a high-voltage electric power transmission line in the area of the city of Buinaksk," the emergency services said.

Measures are under way to connect the affected districts to reserve electricity transmission lines, the emergency services said.
