VLADIVOSTOK, September 2 (Itar-Tass) - The level of water in the Amur River near Khabarovsk has risen to 797 cm on Monday morning, as against 790 cm 24 hours ago, flooding over 600 houses, said an official at the Russian Ministry for Emergencies (RME) center for Khabarovsk Territory.
Hydrologists forecast that by September 5 water in the river will rise up to 830 cm. Khabarovsk Mayor Alexander Sokolov described the flood as "abnormal".
According to a report by the press service of the Khabarovsk Territory administration, water in the Amur rises throughout the Territory and has swept over 1,800 houses inhabited by more than 5,300 people, including 1,027 children.
RME personnel go one evacuating people from flooded areas. Over the past 24 hours they brought to safety more than 100 people.
In Khabarovsk, residents are being evacuated from Remeslennaya, Yungov, Oboronnaya, and Ladozhskaya streets from multi-storey buildings and from private homes in the lowland district of Krasnaya Rechka (red river). A hard situation is developing in Ussuriisky Settlement on Large Ussuri Island, Korsakovo-1 and Korsakovo-2 Settlemens: their resident are unwilling to abandon their homes.
A mobile ferry service continues to operate on the Khabarovsk -- Komsomolsk-on-Amur Road, from the 142nd to 144th kilomeres. A ferry carries ten cars per run within 40 minutes. It will be functioning until the road is repaired.
