SOCHI, August 17 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has urged authorities in the regions hit by the flood and the ministries dealing with the flood consequences to continue their coordinated work.
Large areas and dozens of settlements are flooded. Communication lines, roads, bridges and electro-transmission lines are damaged. Damage from the flood is severe, the president said during the telephone conference on the problem.
The main what is done is that there are no deaths, he noted.
But it is not time to relax. There is still much work to do, Putin said. The president asked the heads of the regions and the federal ministers who are in the flooded zone to report about the latest situation.
The situation remains tense in many regions, the president said and proposed to speak about the most severely hit regions -- the Jewish Autonomous Region, the Khabarovsk Territory and the Amur Region.
