MOSCOW, April 23 (Itar-Tass) — The flood situation in Russia’s Ryazan region has stabilized, a regional branch of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations reported on Monday.
Water in the local Moksha River rose record high to 801 centimeters, exceeding the critical level of 41 centimeters, on April 21-22. As a result, 47 streets and over 47 households inhabited by over 3,500 people, including 602 children, were waterlogged. Three hundred nineteen people were evacuated from the hazard area.
“There has been no further water rise. The water levels are predicted to start falling as of April 24,” the press service went on to say.
Sixteen temporary accommodation centers have been set up to receive 3,760 people.
The bank of the Moksha River and the foundations of houses in the Kadom village have been reinforced. Boat crossings have been organized, the regional branch of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations said.
Almost 500 rescuers, including 300 volunteers, have been called in to fight the flood.
