BLAGOVESHCHENSK, August 7 (Itar-Tass) - The flood situation may worsen in next few days, but it is not disastrous, head of the Russian weather forecasting service Roshydromet Alexander Frolov said on Wednesday.
“We expect a worse situation on August 8-9, heavy rains will be falling, then their intensity will go down,” he said at a meeting of the governmental committee. “We do not dramatize the situation and we cannot name it disastrous,” Frolov noted.
For his part, Minister of Emergency Situations Vladimir Puchkov urged to provide a constantly accurate weather forecast in order to take the measures to minimize negative aftermaths in advance. “I need clear figures, a clear weather forecast for each hour, each day,” the minister said.
