SOCHI, December 10 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s Emergencies Ministry issued an urgent warning Tuesday about avalanches in the mountains near Sochi, where Russia will host the 2014 Winter Olympics in less than two months.

“There is a likelihood of problems with energy supplies, communications, housing services and transport routes,” the local branch of the Emergencies Ministry’s Krasnodar region said in a statement.

Russia is in the final stages of preparations for the Winter Olympics, which will be held in the Black Sea resort of Sochi and a sport cluster in the mountains above the city. The Games are due to start February 7.

Cold weather in the area is expected until the end of the week, when there will be a slight thaw.

The official opening of the ski season in Rosa Khutor, one of the showpiece resorts to be used for the Olympics, is scheduled for Saturday.
