MOSCOW, July 9 (Itar-Tass) – More than 5,000 residential houses remain partially flooded in Russia’s southern Krasnodar territory, the areas of which adjoining the Black Sea coast have eye-witnessed devastating floods not seen throughout the recorded history of that part of the country, a duty officer at the Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense /EMERCOM/ told Itar-Tass.
“According to information available at 00:00 hours Monday, floodwaters have receded from most apartment blocks and facilities of social significance, but the basement floors of 5,105 houses and 110 courtyards remained partly flooded,” the officer said.
Almost 10,500 people and some 1,300 units of technology are engaged in the effort to eliminate the aftermaths of the natural calamity.
“A total of 216 interdepartmental operative groups have been set up to search through the territory, and EMERCOM rescuers have joined them, too,” he said.
Along with it, EMERCOM officials indicate that automobile transport traffic has fully returned to normal.
“Two sections of railway ground work with the overall length of 400 meters remain damaged for the time being and the traffic has been changed over to the reserve mode of operations,” the source said.
Delays and postponements have affected 14 long-distance trains carrying about 4,500 passengers aboard.
