VLADIVOSTOK, August 16 (Itar-Tass) - The water level in the Amur River rose by almost ten meters in the Jewish Autonomous Region on Friday, inundating 119 houses in the Leninskoye village. The number of underflooded houses has increased by 44 over the past 24 hours, the EMERCOM branch for the Jewish Autonomous Region reports.
About 1,100 people have been evacuated from the Leninsky district in the past 24 hours. Rescuers delivered 355 of them to temporary accommodation centers located in the school and cultural center of the Babstovo village. The remaining evacuees are staying at their relatives.
Thousands of meters of dams have been erected around the Leninskoye village. They will be able to restrain the incoming Amur water for some time, the EMERCOM source said.
Fifty rescuers from the Russian Emergencies Ministry, three vehicles and 8 floating means have arrived in Leninskoye to fight the flood.
