VLADIVOSTOK, May 5 (Itar-Tass) — The Verkhneye Lake, which is situated in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, overflew on Saturday, and the Krasnoselskaya River burst its banks in the residential district Novoalexandrovsk. Some 25 courtyards were flooded, the residential premises were flooded in twenty five houses, the press service of the main emergency situation department in the Sakhalin Region told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
