SOCHI, March 13 (Itar-Tass) – A heavy rain has caused partial erosion of a rock-fill embankment on the Mzymta River in Krasnaya Polyana near Sochi. There is no threat to the population. However, for security considerations 700 workers have been evacuated from the nearest accommodation camp, the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry’s (EMERCOM) main emergency department for the Krasnodar Territory told Itar-Tass.
The EMERCOM Southern Regional Centre told Itar-Tass that “there is no threat of the water spreading further.”
The EMERCOM department said that meteorologists had warned of the threat of overwetting of soils and descent of mudflows in mountainous areas of Sochi.
