VLADIVOSTOK, August 7 (Itar-Tass) - As many as 334 homes have been flooded in Russia’s Far Eastern Amur region, some 1,500 people have been evacuated from the flooded areas, the press service of the Far Eastern regional emergencies centre said on Wednesday.
The floods caused by torrential rains have destroyed eight kilometers of motorways making it practically impossible to reach a number of settlements by motor vehicles. Rescuers deliver foods to people who have opted to stay in their flooded home by boats. In some settlements, water level has raised as high as windows.
Rescue services have organized 64 temporary allocation centers capable to accommodating more than 16,000.
Early on Wednesday, more rescuers, two Mi-8 helicopters and an An-74 plane were sent from Khabarovsk to help their colleagues in the Amur region. An engineering column is carrying boat bridges from the Eastern military district to the Amur region’s Zeisky district.
