MOSCOW, August 27 (Itar-Tass) - Water in Russia’s Far-Eastern Amur River in the city of Khabarovsk rose to a new record-breaking mark of 735 centimeters Tuesday morning in what has already turned into a flooding without a precedent in the past 120 years, the Khabarovsk territory branch of the Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense /EMERCOM/ said.
Maximum levels are expected in the coming few days in the cities of Khabarovsk, Komsomolsk-on-Amur, and Nikolayevsk-on-Amur, as well as in a number of districts adjoining the river, the report said.
The department has issued alert notes to the heads of municipalities asking them to take preventive steps in order to keep in check the risks of an outbreak of emergency situations.
While the situation with floods is apparently stabilizing in the Amur region and the Jewish autonomous region, the two territories located up the Amur stream, it continues aggravating in the Khabarovsk territory. A proof of that could be found in the reports that the governors of the Far-Eastern regions and territories made Monday at a process meeting chaired by Viktor Ishayev, the Russian President’s plenipotentiary representative in the Far-Eastern Federal Districts.
The governors’ data suggested that the flooding has affected 185 population centers, 9,500 residential houses, 13,800 private households in the rural areas, 374 social facilities, 611 kilometers of automobile roads, and 566,800 hectares of farmlands occupied by plantations in the Khabarovsk territory, the Amur region and the Jewish autonomous region.
