KRASNODAR, July 14 (Itar-Tass) —— The city of Krymsk, one of the three hit by last weekend’s sudden downpour and flood, will be cleared of debris and mud in four days, the crisis management center said Friday.
“Number one task is cleaning the streets and yards of Krymsk,” Krasnodar Mayor Vladimir Yevlanov told Itar-Tass. He is leading a group of 300 volunteers involved in repair work from the very first day of the tragedy.
The flood literally buried some streets under piles of debris, tree trunks, damaged cars and mud. Five thousand tonnes of garbage is removed every day. An extra dump has had to be opened. Some streets are closed to private cars. The crisis management center has asked local people and guests to put up with this temporary inconvenience for a while.
“In four days’ time, when the bulk of the garbage is removed, the unlivable homes will begin go be demolished,” the Krasnodar Territory’s first deputy governor, Dzhambulat Khatuov said.
