ULAN UDE, July 25 (Itar-Tass) — The water level in the Chara River, Trans-Baikal, is becoming stable, the Trans-Baikal Territory’s emergency department reported on Wednesday.
Two days ago three villages in the Kalar district turned out to be impounded. A total of 16 houses were impounded. At present, the water level has become stable. “The part of residents who forced to live their houses temporarily return home now,” the emergency department said.
“The flood has not threatened villages. The Chara River has stepped back from houses. Only nine farmlands remained impounded in the villages of Chara and Chapo-Ologo,” the emergency department said.
Electricity supply was violated in the Chapo-Ologo village because of the power line failure. At present, electricity is supplied from a diesel generator. The Chara-Chapo-Ologo motor road is being restored. “The population is regularly informed about the meteorological situation. Foodstuffs are transported to the villages of Chara, Kyust-Kemda and Chapo-Ologo. The situation on the rivers is monitored by meteorologists,” the emergency department said.
