CHELYABINSK, August 8 (Itar-Tass) - More than 200 children and adults have been evacuated from children’s camps in Russia’s Chelyabinsk region because of feared floods, a source from the Verkhneuralsk district administration told Tass on Thursday.
He said 120 children had been evacuated from Zarya children’s camp to their homes. “This measure was taken because of heavy rain that could destroy man-made levees, thus making it impossible to get to the camp,” he said.
A dozen private households in the Verkhneuralsk municipality have been partially flooded because the Ural river is in flood.
Several dozen children were also evacuated from two more children’s camps. Information is being updated, the regional department of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations has told Tass.
