MOSCOW, April 11 (Itar-Tass) —— About 1,000 houses are inundated in Russia, almost 540 people were evacuated from the flooded zones, the Information Department of the Russian Emergencies Ministry told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“As many as, 903 houses resided with almost 2,500 people, including 386 children, were inundated in 18 populated centre of Russia’s Central, Volga and Southern federal districts,” the ministry’s representative said, adding that 537 people, including 121 children, were evacuated from the flooded territories and houses.

The flood situation is constantly monitored by 317 emergency groups. Almost 2,000 people and 623 special machinery units were mobilised for the counter-flood operations, the Emergencies Ministry’s official said.
Under the forecast drafted by the Ministry’s Antistikhiya Centre, the biggest risk of inundation is expected to be this spring in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), the Irkutsk region, and in the Primorye, Khabarovsk and Krasnoyarsk territories.
Besides, the high risk of flooding is projected in population centres of 33 regions of the Far Eastern, Siberian, Central, Volga, Northwest and Southern federal districts due to a very intensive snow-melting, potential failures and clogging of drainage systems, the ministry’s representative said.
