MOSCOW, August 19 (Itar-Tass) - One more Il-76 plane of the Emergencies Ministry with rescuers aboard has flown out for the flood-hit Far East, the ministry's spokesperson Irina Rossius told Itar-Tass.
The Il-76 with 79 rescuers aboard took off from Ramenskoye airport at 23:55 Moscow time and headed for Khabarovsk. The plane will also deliver 28 boats, she said.
An operational Emergencies Ministry group headed by First Deputy Minister Sergei Shlyakov left for Blagoveshchensk earlier. Specialists from the Russian Centre of Emergency and Radiation Medicine will also arrive in the Amur Region.
Three thousand rations and 1,000 wetsuits will be delivered to the region.
In addition, the Emergencies Ministry sent 100 tonnes of drinking water by rail for residents of the flooded areas.
According to Roshydromet, the peak of the flood has practically passed in the Amur Region, but it is moving to the Jewish Autonomous Region and the Khabarovsk Territory, where the Amur River in Khabarovsk may rise a meter higher to reach 780 cm, an unprecedented level.
