ZEYA, August 17 (Itar-Tass) - The Zeya River rose 60 cm in the area of the village of Ovsyanka in the Amur Region over the past day after the Zeiskaya HPP increased its water discharge by 1,000 cub/m a sec.
Thirty two people, including 22 children, remain at the temporary accommodation station in a school in Ovsyanka. After the first and second waves of the flood in the village of Ivanovka, there were 54 people.
Psychologists work at a mobile point at the site. People from the accommodation station are taken to take a bath at another place once in three days, the head of Ovsyanka told Itar-Tass. Meals are provided for the people in the school canteen. There is a free telephone to call relatives.
A woman resident of Ivanovka told Itar-Tass that only about 20 houses were not hit by the flood in her village. The woman with her family has remained at the station since July 22.
The school administration plans to ask RusHydro to provide money to repair a boarding school in the village to accommodate the evacuees. Otherwise, a part of the school will be given for the people to reside, and pupils will study in shifts. And repair was not done in the school because of the flood.
There are reserve places for 38 people more at the station for evacuees in Ovsyanka.
