MAKHACHKALA, Dagestan, October 12 (Itar-Tass) — Repair workers have fully restored electricity and gas supplies in Derbent, a rain and flood-stricken city in Dagestan. “Only one pumping station that supplies drinking water to the population remains damaged,” a source at the Russian Interior Ministry department for Dagestan told Itar-Tass on Friday.
At present, Derbent has four water stations. Six water carriers distribute water among the population. The town administration has decided to build a new pumping station instead of the one which was loss-making.
A special commission set up to estimate the extent of damage from the rain-caused flood has inspected 245 houses in Derbent of which none was damaged. Ninety-four houses have been examined in the Sabnova village of the Derbent district. Seventeen of them have damages of various degrees. Volunteers in Dagestan’s cities and districts are collecting relief aid for people in the flood-affected areas. The “Pure Heart” charitable foundation has sent 10 tons of relief aid.
Derbent’s emergency center has announced a day of voluntary work known as subbotnik in the city on October 13. More than 2,450 cubic meters of dirt and garbage have been taken away by now.
A torrential rain fell on Derbent and its outskirts on the night to October 10. It poured for three hours. The disaster claimed the lives of six people. A family of three and a ten-month old child died in the rain-caused flood. Three hundred twenty private land allotments and private households were inundated. A total of 1,120 people, including 280 children, were stranded in the flood-stricken area.
