BLAGOVESHCHENSK, August 15 (Itar-Tass) - Units of the Emergency Situations Ministry are ready to the flood peak in the Amur region, head of the emergency headquarters Sergei Didenko said on Wednesday, August 14.
“Our units are ready for the flood peak. As of today no victims have been reported. I believe it will be so,” Didenko said.
He said the ministry’s units increased permanently. “Our plane carried pre-engineering dams from the Federal Agency for State Reserves. They help us prepare settlements for the water rise,” Didenko said, adding, “The Amur region received four kilometres of such dams. Let’s see them function. Then we’ll ask for additional dams to protect other settlements.”
Earlier, chief of the National Centre for Crisis Management Vladimir Stepanov said the flood peak was expected to reach the Amur region by the end of the week. “Thus, we’ll organise our work,” he added.
