MOSCOW, August 19 (Itar-Tass) - The flood in Russia’s Amur region has practically passed its peak, the head of the Russian Meteorological Service Alexander Frolov said on Monday.
“We are seeing an improvement of hydrological situation in the Amur region. No rain is expected in the next three days,” Frolov said. The situation stabilizes along the Zeya and Amur rivers, he added.
“We may say that the flood has passed its peak, and under the forecasts the inflow of water in the Bureya and Zeya hydropower plants will decrease,” the official explained.
However, the peak of floods is now moving to Khabarovsk, where the water levels may exceed the forecasted mark of 700 centimeters, and where Komsomolsk-on-Amur is under a threat, he specified. Besides, the situation may worsen in the Jewish Autonomous Region.
