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.
