VLADIVOSTOK, August 20 (Itar-Tass) - The flood went up to roofs of houses in the Jewish Autonomous Region on Tuesday.
More than 560 houses are flooded, some to the roofs, in 24 settlements, the press service of the regional administration told Itar-Tass.
The Amur overflowed its banks in the entire region. The river went up 160 cm above the critical level near the settlement of Pashkovo, 178 cm near Nagibovo and 92 cm near Nikolskoye.
The Bira River near the city of Birobidzhan went down 2 cm on Monday, but the level is still 100 cm higher.
In all the flood-hit residential areas, the flows penetrate into houses, inundate gardens, wash out roads, damage bridges and destroy crops. People from the flooded houses are evacuated to temporary accommodation centre or to homes of friends and relatives.
