SOCHI, March 13 (Itar-Tass) – The Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations issued on Wednesday a flooding warning for the Black Sea resort city of Sochi.
As rains continue and snow is melting in the mountains, water level of local rivers may rise within the day, sources from the ministry’s Krasnodar region department have told Tass.
Rescuers don’t rule out the possibility of emergency situations such as a partial flooding of local settlements, workers’ settlements and construction sites, bank erosion, dyke breaking, as well as damage to bridges, railways and power transmission lines. New mudslides are not ruled out.
Mudslides triggered by downpours already hit a section of the left bank of the Mzymta River outside Sochi overnight to Wednesday.
The most powerful mudslide blocked a road used by local workers. Also on Wednesday, a rock-fill embankment on the Mzymta River in Krasnaya Polyana near Sochi was partially eroded by a heavy rain.
