KRASNODAR, March 25 (Itar-Tass) -- Strong winds blowing at up to 20 meters per seond have produced a dangerously high rise of water levels in the Sea of Azov near the city of Yeisk, Russia's southern Krasnodar territory, a spokesman for the territorial branch of the Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense /EMERCOM/ said Sunday night.
"The situation near the township of Dolzhanskaya where the critical level of searise has been reached may be especially problematic," he said.
"Sunday, a commission in charge of response to emergency situations and firefighting measures introduced an emergency situation regime in Yeisk, as the water levels had started swelling fast in the Gulf of Yeisk and the neighboring Gulf of Taganrog," the administrator of the Yeisk district, Mikhail Timofeyev told Itar-Tass.
A dangerous rise of the sea was also registered in the neighboring town of Primorsko-Akhtarsky.
