«Orange” level is not as dangerous as “red”, but it still means that the health of significant harm may be caused. To prevent this, the city emergency measures taken.

the coolest station – new, because the soil around has not yet had time to warm up

At the stations, where the flooded soils. temperature is lower than at stations located in the dry soil as the water removes excess heat. For example, on the Ring, Kalinin, Arbat-Pokrovskaya and Kakhovska lines colder than Serpukhovsko-Timiryazevskaya, Kaluga, Riga, and even more so on the “older” Sokolniki and Zamoskvoretskaya lines.
