SOCHI, March 13 (Itar-Tass) – Construction workers have begun restoring a rock-fill embankment on the Mzymta River in Krasnaya Polyana near Sochi eroded by a heavy rain.
There is no danger of a flooding. The administration of the Black Sea resort city has set up headquarters to liquidate the aftermath and to control the flooding situation on the Mzymta River, sources from the regional department of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations (EMERCOM) said.
The partial erosion occurred early on Wednesday. There was no danger for the local population, but for security considerations 700 workers were evacuated from the nearest workers’ settlement.
The EMERCOM department said that meteorologists had forecasted heavy rains which might trigger the overwetting of soils and a rise in river levels in the area of Krasnaya Polyana.
