MOSCOW, April 22 (Itar-Tass) —— Volunteers are helping cleanup flood aftereffects in the Ryazan region, the regional emergency situations department told Itar-Tass.
“Nearly 140 employees of various ministries and departments and about 300 volunteers are combating the flood,” it said. “The flood zone is growing. The rising water level in the River Moksha flooded 1,148 homes with more than 3,500 residents in the village Kadom.”
Sixteen shelters with the total capacity of 3,760 people have been prepared for possible evacuees. There are five shelters in Kadom and eleven in nearby areas. So far 313 people have been evacuated, including 13 staying at the Kadom hospital and 300 with their relatives.
Some 1,500 bags with sand were planted to reinforce the river lank within the Kadom limits. Water and gas supply to the flooded homes is not cut. “Social sites and shops are also open,” the department said.
