MOSCOW, April 22 (Itar-Tass) —— The spring freshet in Siberia begins a week earlier than usual, Russian Emergency Situations Ministry Civil Defense Department Director Sergei Didenko said.
“Flood risks will grow in the basin of the Ob and Yenisei Rivers soon, as the river ice will start cracking seven to ten days earlier than usual,” he said. Normally, Siberian rivers free of ice in early May.
“We do not forecast serious risks to big cities,” Didenko noted.
On the whole, the spring freshet coincides with the forecast of the Federal Hydro-Meteorological Service, but it starts a week or two earlier than usual in certain regions, he said.
