An extraordinary meeting of the operative headquarters to eliminate consequences of the natural calamity, the coming down of the Karmadon glacier, completed its work in Vladikavkaz. Prime-minister of North Ossetia (a republic in the North Caucasus in the composition of Russia) Mikhail Shatalov reported that at the moment about 30 residents of the Nizhny Karmadon settlement buried by blocks of ice were considered to be missing but not yet dead.
