VLADIVOSTOK, August 24 (Itar-Tass) — Mountain rivers that have burst their banks as a result of heavy rains have destroyed more than 10 bridges in the Partizansky district of the Primorye Territory. One power transmission line has been damaged, which left without electricity supply the Slinkino and Romanovsky Klyuch settlements with the total population of more than 420 people.
Flood waters continue to threaten several other important bridges in the district; many uprooted trees, which clogged passages under the bridges, have been brought by the water. The rivers have changed their course bypassing the obstacle, have washed out roads and now are washing away bridge supports, the administration of the Partizansky district reported.
